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.

2000 Toyota Avalon Owner Comments

Avalon XL V6

I have a 2000 Avalon XL which I've had to replace one lifter on and now its knocking so bad I think another one is needed to be changed. They are expensive. I also just replaced my brakes and they squeak horribly all the time. Any ideas? I bought the best ceramic ones on the market and there is hardly any wear on them but they are horrible. Wagner was the brand. Just spent a $1000 at the Toyota dealership to have tune up and several fluids flushed and refilled and now whenever i make a turn it sounds like something is rolling across my console from side to side. Any ideas?
