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.

2004 Toyota Avalon Owner Comments

Complaint against Toyota comments: Sirs, July 29, 2010 - Toyota motor sales, Inc. Issued a recall for model year 2000-2004 Toyota Avalons. Toyota stated that customers will be notified "...beginning in late August 2010 to bring their vehicles to their Toyota dealer for replacement of the steering column bracket..." as of today, October 6, 2010, notification has not be sent to me. Although I have had the part replaced, the replacement was due only to my diligence and not to the prudence of Toyota. I feel sympathy for those drivers who may have been involved in a needless accident because they were unaware of the danger that could occur due a failure of a part of their automobile. I recommend that NHTSA investigate this situation at Toyota.
