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

problem #2

2006 Toyota Avalon - during first year of ownership, vehicle engine revved strongly while applying the brake while going about 30 mph. The car sounded like it waned to go 60 mph or more and leached, but I was able to stop it by pressing harder on the brake.this happened on 2 or 3 occasions. At first I thought I was just not use to the vehicle and hit the brake and gas pedal together, but I had serious doubts. I now realize I was experiencing the current problem. It only happened during the first year of driving and has not happened to me since. I doubt this was due to a stuck pedal, but some electronic issue is at fault (perhaps the cruise control system).

Sept. 27, 2009, I was driving my 2006 Toyota Avalon into my garage at a slow speed. When I hit the brake, the car accelerated causing me to drive into the workbench, braking it and some wallboard behind it as well as damaging the car before the car finally came to a stop.
