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.

2009 Toyota Venza Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 172015

Venza 6-cyl

  • 108,000 miles


Toyota 2009 Venza systemic speed sensor failures: Right rear speed sensor 1/17/2015: Left rear speed sensor May 2013: Left front speed sensor April 2012 in each case, the antilock brake system (ABS) and the vehicle stability control (vsc) systems were disabled, creating hazardous vehicle operation, especially in snow/ice. Researching, I determined that no recall had been issued, but that knowledge of the defective speed sensors and that their failure disabled the ABS and traction control systems were common knowledge. I notified Toyota customer assistance center of my concern, on January 22, 2015 (Toyota case # [xxx]), and made formal request for full reimbursement of the charges for the third repair on the basis that Venza speed sensor failures are a systemic, recognized issue causing hazardous driving conditions, and clearly should have been the subject of a recall long past. I notified Toyota that the criteria for notification of the issue to the department of transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) were clearly met. Per United States code for motor vehicle safety (title 49, chapter 301), motor vehicle safety is defined as ┐the performance of a motor vehicle or motor vehicle equipment in a way that protects the public against unreasonable risk of accidents occurring because of the design, construction, or performance of a motor vehicle, and against unreasonable risk of death or injury in an accident, and includes nonoperational safety of a motor vehicle.Ł Toyota rejected my request 3/10/15 on the basis that it did not meet the criteria of their new vehicle limited warranty, completely disregarding the stated concern. Given that Toyota has willfully chosen to not address the recall and hazard issues raised, this complaint is submitted. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
