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.

2014 Toyota Avalon Owner Comments

problem #1

Avalon 4-cyl

Driving down road.. no cars in front of me no objects in road. Clear sunny day when the pre-collision system alarm sounded and the pcs indicator light lite. The ABS engaged. And the car came to a complete and sudden halt. Luckily noone was behind me, because if there was, a rear end collision could have occured. This issue did occur to a lessor extent on two prior occasions (about 1 month ago) but the car did not come to a complete halt as it did on 7/6. in both of those instances, there were no cars in front of me and no obstructions in the road. The road(s) were strait. No curves. Took car to Toyota and they refuse to do anything about the issue because they could not duplicate the problem. Im afraid that this will happen again, which could hurt myself, others or cause property damage.
