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.

1999 Toyota Avalon Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 232009

Avalon XL V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 84,000 miles


Gas smell is severe, especially after filling the gas tank. Had the car to a Toyota dealer 3 times, they cannot determine what problem is. Cannot keep car in garage as gas smell is so bad. Very careful when filling tank to not drop any gas, always put cap on tight. Dealer indicated never had a problem with l999 Toyota Avalon like I have. Engine light does not come on to indicate any problems. Only have 84,000 miles and it has been a wonderful car but very upset with problem I have now as I cannot afford to buy a new car and this car has a lot of life left in it and the dealer cannot guarantee that if they replace the canister (connected to gas tank) that it would solve my problem. Any suggestions?????
