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.

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).

Venza 6-cyl

On January 8th,2015 I had the right front wheel speed sensor replaced on our vehicle. An internet check revealed that a technical service bulletin ref: Tsb 0031-12 was issued. NHTSA ref: 10052153 for the 2009 Venza was also issued due to numerous complaints of faulty wheel speed sensors.the faulty wheel speed sensor caused 3 warning lights to come on. The ABS, vsc and brake system warning lights could you please include this VIN if a recall is announced. Thank you.

I own a 2009 Toyota Venza. Recently by rotating the wheels, I noticed the nuts were loosen. So when taking the wheels out, I noticed that the disc brakes were not tighten to the lugs and could roll back and forth by the little bit of the space between the lugs and the lugs' holes. They would be tighten when the wheels were on and tighten with the wheels' nuts. I use my educated guess to guess that when I brake the car, the disc brakes will have a chance to roll in reverse direction of the wheels in that little bit of the space. When I back up the car, then brake, again, the disc brakes will roll the other direction. This action will result in loosing the wheels' nuts after a short while. We have other cars from other manufactures, and we found that they don't design the same way, which the disc brakes are tighten to the lugs alone. I wrote this same email to Toyota, but I don't think they will answer me. I think this is another safety issue. If owners who don't pay attention to retighten the wheels after 5000-7000 miles, they will face a chance of loosing a wheel on the freeway. Please put your engineers to test this issue to help bringing more safety to everyone. Thank you
