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

Dec 152006


  • 1,800 miles


I purchased a 007 Toyota Avalon limited in 11/2006 before a month passed I had to take it to the local dealership in visalia, ca. I told the shop manager the footpedal had gotten stuck and the car was wide open, I stomped on the gas pedal and it wouldn't come up, then I reached down and grabbed it and pulled it up, I told the shop manager if I had been in traffic or town there would have been injuries or death and this was a serious problem, they checked it out and told me I didn't know how to drive the car and it was ok. I was a mad customer, then I told him there was also a problem with the computer, the thing wouldn't idle down coming up to a stop sign, and if you put the car in neutral as you braking coming up to a stop it would almost put you through the window, and they needed to fix this, I got the same answer the car is ok. Well by then I really mad, but I also knew then they had no intention of fixing or acknowledging there was a problem, the car has 85K miles on it now and I'm on the 3rd set of tires, 2nd set of brakes, 2nd set of rotors, and had the front end aligned and new bolts installed in the front end so the camber could be adjusted, what a !@#$%, I have been asked to leave dealerships for raising !@#$% about this car, I've also said the paint on this car is junk to and they refuse to do anything about it. I have three years of diesel and gasoline mechanics, was the top of my class and sought after by many large corporations when I graduated in 1978, and I used to work at a Chevy dealership as a line mechanic when I graduated. I can assure you Toyota knew they had problems, and refused to do anything as far back as 2006, if I had the extra money or the time I would have sued them a long time ago, but they are so big as a company I probably didn't have a chance until now. I will bet you if you interview workers at the Toyota plants where the cars were built you will find they have had gas pedals stick at the factory too. Want to bet me?
