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.

2007 Toyota Avalon Owner Comments

problem #1

My car is a 2007 Avalon Toyota and when I first purchased it I had problems with the car accelerating, brought it into the dealer and no problem was ever found. This happened a minimum of 3 times. Then the car seemed to be ok, and it happened again about 1 year ago. I did not bring it to the dealer. The car has been running fine, but I have been watchful of it. And iwas told just to put it in neutral and turn off the motor. But it did not happen again. While in Florida this past winter I did have my car serviced for all 3 recalls with much hesitation since, as I said, the car seemed to be ok. It has been approx. 3 weeks since I had all the recall work done and while driving home from fla. I went into a gas station to put air in my tires and then all [xxx] broke loose. I was driving slow looking for the air pump and the carwent crazy accelerating. I yelled, put my foot on the brakes and turned off the motor. It had nothing to do with the floor mat, pedal etc. Nothing was noticeable stuck. I love this car, but there is a devil inside the motor. Since the recall did not take care of the problem what should I do? information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
