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.

Avalon Limited

Considering the other issues I have had with my Avalon the broken power shade issue is minor but am still disappointed nonetheless. Nothing like starting off Monday morning with a horrible noise coming from the back of your car when you put it in reverse. The noise only went away when I shut the car off. Eventually had to drive off without putting the car in reverse. I loved this feature in the car - we carry our grandbabies around and that was wonderful thing to have. I also felt it would be a great asset if we should ever sell the car. Well, it is not under warranty so we decided not to fix it at all, it would cost $1,200. I am just glad I didn't opt for the Navigation System in my Avalon - nothing like having a bunch of "options" that are totally worthless in your luxury car. My car has only 62,000 miles on it . . . sigh.
