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.

2005 Toyota Avalon Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 242005

Avalon 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,800 miles


I own a 2005 Toyota Avalon limited, this is the second time within an approximate six month period that the vehicle just shut off while in operation. During both occasions the engine surged, hesitated and shut off. The vehicle could not be restarted and was towed to dealer. The first repair for this problem, mechanics stated was a fuse in the fuel control system that blew. The vehicle is presently in the shop for the same problem. They advised at this time they do not know what is causing the fuse to blow. Each failure occurred during normal driving conditions, clear dry day, freeway driving.
