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

Dec 092005

Avalon 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


Note: I had to classify this vehicle as a Camry because a selection for a 2005 Avalon was not available - recently we had our first major snow storm. I was driving on the highway and within minutes my windshield wipers began to freeze up and sharply limited my visibility. I checked with the dealer service dept only to discover that Toyota does not manufacture a winter (booted) wiper blade for this vehicle. I searched the internet (trico, anco, etc. Websites) but could find no aftermarket winter blades for this model Avalon. Toyota had redesigned the wiper arm and blades to accept only the expensive ($56 a set) Toyota manufactured wiper blades. I sent an email to Toyota and they responded by telling me to check with my dealers service dept. Naturally the dealer could not do anything to resolve the problem because Toyota does not manufacture any equipment solutions for them to apply. I am very disappointed with Toyota's response as I consider this a serious safety issue. I'm fortunate that I didn't drive off the road and into a ditch. The next time I have to drive in a snow storm you can be certain that I won't be driving the Avalon.
