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.

Tundra 8-cyl

Toyota 2010 Tundra 4.6L double cab vehicle. Extremely sensative gas pedal. Nearly impossible to accelerate from complete or slow rolling stop without lurching ahead quickly. Nearly impossible to accelerate smoothly without wheel spin in wet or snow covered roads making this a safety hazzard. It is also a safety hazzard because I cannot back up or go forward safely in parking situations or parking lots. If there is anyone ahead or behind the truck - even for a considerable distance, I do not drive the truck because I cannot be sure it won't move ahead or behind uncontrolably. Toyota dealer knows of this problem and I have notified Toyota. Dealer re-synked gas pedal to engine drive by wire components but problem still exists. I suspect it is a problem with the digital encoder on the gas pedal, the computer software in the ECU, and the stepper motor operating the throttle butterfly on the air intake. Service manager at local dealer witnessed my driving the truck and symptoms, then drove the truck and experienced the symptoms. He offered no solution. The problem is not constant. Sometimes it is extreme, other times it is less. But the gas pedal is always very sensitive. Truck was acquired used with 6,700 miles on it and now has 8,000 miles of use. Engine runs smoothly, starts quickly, gets rated gas mileage, and drives smoothly once in motion.

Tundra 4WD 8-cyl

  • 9,000 miles
I have a 2010 Toyota Tundra that has about 10,000 miles on it. About two months ago I started noticing the truck will randomly have a sudden loss of power. It happens mainly when it has been sitting all day. It's kind of scary because when you are pulling out of a parking lot or making a left hand turn the truck will all of a sudden have no power and then it will jolt forward. I have not taken it to the dealer because no indicator lights are coming on and that's usually the only way they know how to fix problems. I have read a few forums that talk about this problem, one guy said he had his truck in and out of the dealer for 4 months and they basically ripped his whole truck apart. They finally came to the conclusion that the wire harness under the dash that goes to the fuel pump was loose and causing the problem. I called Toyota and the dealer and they told me they have not had enough complaints yet but when they do they will probably come out with a fix. I haven't done much since mainly because I don't want the dealer wasting my time and taking my truck apart.

Tundra

  • 400 miles
In March 2010, I purchased a new Toyota Tundra 2010 crewmax 5.7L truck fully loaded with navigation system, remote start, and guidepoint (lojack like) system from expressway Toyota in dorchester, MA. The truck was supposedly manufactured in February 2010 and had the revised gas pedal. On March 23, the incident below occurred. Was driving to work from reading, MA to charlestown, MA (about 13 miles) on Tuesday, March 23. It was a rainy day and traffic was heavy. I had the defroster and wipers on and was stuck in traffic on a busy main street about 10 miles into the trip. The car in front of me started to move forward slowly so I took my foot off the brake to also move forward slowly. That other car was about 10 feet in front of me. I barely touched the gas pedal when the truck took off at full acceleration. I got on the brake as heavy as I could and the truck fish tailed side to side. I quickly put it into neutral and then park while the truck was still revving at full acceleration. While it was in park and engine still going full speed I tapped the gas pedal with my foot and it released. I was very lucky I didn't crash into anything. I did smell a burning odor once I got the truck under control. I'm not sure if that was the tires, brake pads or something else.
