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

My 2000 Toyota Avalon has suddenly accelerated over the years at least 10 times. I never did anything about it because when it happened, the times that it happened were spaced so far apart. Another thing, it only happened when it was EXTREMELY cold outside. I can't remember it ever happening during regular weather days. What would happen is I'd be driving, I'd press the accelerator, and whereever the accelerator was depressed, it would stay there after I eased up of the pedal. I had to pump the gas pedal (not apply the brake) to make it pop back up. It was really weird the first time it happened. I never took it into a dealer, because I knew they'd not be able to reproduce the problem because it didn't happen all the time to me. Interestingly, I still have the car, but it hasn't happened even once this year. I believe it's because we've had a pretty mild Chicago winter as compared to the past Chicago winters.
