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.

Avalon 4-cyl

The pre-collision system abruptly and for no apparent reason activated on a freeway in charleston, SC. No car or other obstruction was in front of the vehicle. A disorienting loud alarm began, the seat belts forced us into our seats and immobilized us, and the vehicle did a panic braking maneuver-it could not have braked more forcefully. If someone had been behind us we would have been killed.the dealership found no anomaly. They gave us a list of 13 different highway situations that could cause this. None of them are uncommon. This system is very dangerous and is going to get someone killed. I have disabled mine. Your Agency should require that they be disabled and not installed in other vehicles until this fatal flaw is overcome.
