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.

2002 Toyota Avalon Owner Comments

problem #1

Picked up the car on 12/31/01 without any problems. Beginning 1/2/02, the front passenger SRS warning light flashed on an off intermittently. Took to dealer 1/3/02. They determined that the wiring had been incorrectly routed under the front passenger bucket seat and had become crimped when the power seat was moved. The dealer is making the repairs which includes removal of the front passenger bucket seat. I am pleased with their response, but concerned that such a problem could occur and that there may very well be more cars with the same problem.
