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

Feb 012012

Avalon Limited

  • Automatic transmission
  • 30,503 miles


After reading the other 2006 Avalon owners complaint w/the power steering rack leak at around 60,000 miles I felt even worse. My 2006 Avalon leaked at only 30,000 miles. I was only a few months past my warranty when I found out about this very expensive problem. I read on the internet that other year models had the same problem.

problem #1

Avalon Limited 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 63,000 miles

Very expensive failure at what seems like low mileage, for a Toyota. Online search shows a number of these for this year/model.
