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.

2001 Toyota Avalon Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 232004


  • Automatic transmission
  • 26,000 miles


I have had 2 of the 4 general tires that came on my 2001 Toyota Avalon fail recently. Fortunately neither one caused an accident. The first failure was discovered when I took my car to the dealer for a wheel alignment because the car was pulling to the right. The dealer informed me that the tire had separated and I had them replace it with the spare tire. I discovered the second tire had failed when I took it to a tire store because it was low and I suspected a puncture in the tire. I asked them to check the tire for a problem because I had experienced a slight front end shimmy between 5 and 10 mph. While the tire was being checked the mechanic discovered that the tire had a separation. These tires have only 26,000 miles on them and I have always kept them properly inflated and I rotated and balanced them every 6,000 miles. Have not checked the other two tires that came with my car but have not noticed a problem.
