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.

2016 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

problem #1

Bought new 2016 Tundra limited 11/16/2015 and noticed that dash lights do not come on during daylight hours unless parking lights or headlights are on. In the off/drl position or the auto position no dash lights. When I called Toyota help line I was told that this change was made because if the driver can see the outline of the numbers on the gauges they do not need to be illuminated. He could not offer any reason for changing this standard feature. Other than not seeing the gauges sharper and clearer one safety defect is present. The Tundra has gauges instead of warning lights for engine operations and they are smaller than the speedometer/tachometer. The temp gauge is located on the lower left of the dash and cannot be seen clearly without the dash illuminated because that corner is dark if it is cloudy or early or late. If the engine overheats one would not see that problem on the gauge which might lead to engine failure, etc. I have never owned a vehicle that required turning on the parking lights or headlights to illuminate the says that switch cannot be customized. Toyota should issue a fix for this mistake.
