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.

2013 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

The truck horn does not work when pressing on the steering wheel. It will work when the panic button is pressed. I bought the truck from the original owner, a friend of mine, and he believes it never worked. My brother has a similar Tundra 2014 model and his horn has started working only intermittingly. I believe this may be a common problem.

The contact owns a 2013 Toyota Tundra. While driving at approximately 60 mph, there were flames coming from the fuel lines, the engine compartment, and under the vehicle near the rear windows. The fire department was able to extinguish the fire. A police report was not filed and there were no injuries reported. The vehicle was towed to the contact's residence. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 40,000.

The body of the truck is designed to allow rodents/mice into the cab where they can chew the wiring which will lead to a variety of problems. The truck currently has about 3300 miles on it. When I contacted the dealer they said yeah all these trucks have this, what has been damaged so we can get it in for repair. I asked if it was covered under warranty and they said no. Coating the wiring with a soy (mouse food) based product is insanity unless you're trying to increase your repair business. There are 16 computers in this truck that control everything. When the wiring is damaged because of this design flaw all sorts of malfunctions will occur that include steering, engine quitting, brakes failing, throttle, lights, etc. The dealer is very aware of the problem and specializes in fixing it to the tune of about $200 so far. I haven't had a wiring problem because of mice but others have. This very funny (to the dealer0 problem will eventually kill people if it hasn't already.
