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 #1

Oct 152008

Avalon XLS V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 38,000 miles


My Toyota Avalon is only two years old and has 38,000 miles on it. The tech at Toyota says the charcoal canisters usually go bad after 100,000 miles, so I'm angry that I have to pay $622 to replace this one in my car. I think Toyota should replace this part since it obviously failed at their cost. I only took the car in because a check engine light came on. I already had to replace the Michelin tires after two years on this car. If this is the beginning I think I might have a "lemon".
