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

When I attempted to secure the driver side seat belt of my 2005 Toyota Avalon after a shopping stop, I discovered that the bolt holding the seat belt to the car post had popped out and left the seat belt dangling and unusable. I surmise that it popped out when I released it after arriving at my destination. I immediately drove to the Toyota dealership where they reattached it. I do not know whether they used a new bolt or found the old one in the car.
