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.

problem #2

Avalon 6-cyl

  • 89,000 miles


Check tire pressure usually the first week of the month and never had problem of tires losing 60% of air between checkups. I thought that there was a puncture and took it to discount tire in romeoville(where I bought yokohama tires). Checked all the four tires and found no nails or other. They however found two wheels with corrosion(white flaking) and they suggested that I replace the wheels for this weather damage will only accelerate. These are supposed to be alloy wheels and how can there be weather damage. I had all the four wheels ground and buffed. Six months later, air leakage was back with vengeance and since it cost me only $19 a wheel to grind and buff - I have been doing this instead of shelling over $500 to have the wheels replaced. These wheels are not genuine Toyota. I had Celica St back in the 70S and 80S and I had none of this nonsense with its alloy wheels.

Odometer is giving a false reading. Also, vehicle was designed for a 15 inch wheel, and vehicle has a 16 inch wheel. Contacted dealer, and dealer stated speedometer was okay.
