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

Avalon XL 3.0L V6

About a week after I bought the car I noticed the console was rattling where the ac control was. It drove me so f-cking crazy it was always really loud and was audible at about 45mph and worse if on highway. Whenever the car was taken in to be fixed I told them about it and they didn't know what was wrong. Then it even got worse, at about 110,000 miles the seat head cushion would begin to rattle. And at about 120,000 miles the door would rattle and you could feel air coming from the window even when fully shut. It is currently at about 125,000 miles. My grandfather has an acura legend 1998 and has about the same amount of miles and it almost never has any problems and runs smooth and is very comfortable.
