Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The contact owns a 2010 Toyota Tundra. While driving uphill 35 mph, the vehicle began to roll backwards and the engine stalled; it was able to be immediately restarted. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer who stated that the failure was common but the vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer had not been notified. The failure mileage was 18,000.

On Oct 7,2010, we purchased a 2010 Toyota Tundra. Our vehicle is 2 months old and has already had a catastrophic engine failure. The vehicle has 2276 miles. While driving home from work my husband heard a loud bang. He pulled over and oil was gushing every where. He had it towed to the local Toyota dealer. We were told the vehicle threw a rod and went into the bottom part of the engine, requiring a complete engine rebuild. Has not been repair yet, awaiting parts. We were also told, there had been other vehicles with bad rods. The only thing Toyota wants to offer me is a platinum warranty-8yrs,125,000 miles. I haven't decided yet because I would like to know if there have been similar cases such as ours. Our local Toyota service department has been pretty good considering we did not purchase the vehicle locally.

At approximately 11,000 miles my truck engine started running rough and would shut off on me while I was driving. The first incident occurred on April 16, 2010. It typically happens after my truck is warmed up - about an hour of driving. I have been stalled at traffic lights, on I-275, on sr 60 and almost stalled on some railroad tracks. I have taken my truck to various Toyota dealers for repairs (depending on where I broke down). The service people have changed out the catalytic converters, fuel pump, oxygen sensors, cam-shaft sensors and computer hardware. My truck has been at the winter haven, fl Toyota dealership for service since May 21, 2010 for repair.
