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.

2012 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

Driver's seat frame (base) began intermittently popping which progressed to a consistent popping felt every time the vehicle cornered at speed or weight shifted in the driver's seat. The problem was confirmed by dealership and an adjustment made to the seat rail alignment pin. For several months, the problem appeared to be fixed. However, the problem ultimately returned with a similar popping noise. I allowed it to progress until the dealership could reproduce the popping noise in the driver's seat frame (base). The problem was identified the second time as a cracked weld in the frame near the point where the seat back and base are connected. The dealership ordered and replaced the entire seat frame with a new one. The mileage at the time of repair was 23500 miles. I am documenting the issue because I have noticed several others complaining on truck forums of popping in the seat frame. Also, I noticed the recent Toyota recall for a similar issue in other model cars.
