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.

2006 Toyota Avalon Owner Comments

Car has 32000 miles and has been kept in a garage since new. Dashboard is so shiny, we can no longer drive it. Toyota has delayed getting the replacement dashboard for most of 2015, and now says it could be another year to year and a half. We cannot drive this car because the sun shines off of the dashboard, making it impossible to see. The reflection in the inside of the windshield is so intense, that we have elected not to drive it (it was our primary car), so we went out and bought a new Honda. I'm a disabled veteran, and this really hurt our budget - but we had to have a dependable car. This recall should be elevated to a safety recall to force Toyota to step up and prioritize replacement dashboards.
