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

Vehicle was stopped on an uphill grade. When I began to accelerate on the grade the car would move a about three feet into the intersection but would not go further. A loud rumbling sound and the car vibrated but would not move.. another car to my right had to stop to avoid hitting me. T think the traction control is designed poorly as I have read similar complaints online.

The traction control system in our 2006 Toyota Avalon will not allow the car to drive in snow. Once a wheel starts to slip the brake is applied and the car will not move. As we live in Colorado this is a serious problem.
