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.

I have had this vehicle serviced faithfully since day one. I originally bought it from a freind who had done the same. I am really suspicious of the person who has been doing the servicing, but no-one including Toyota will back me up. The people at Toyota told me that this can happen to any car!! What does this mean?? Don't they have the guts to stand behind their product or is this really a bad fault with the RAV4. In other words, after the car has done 200,000 kilometers the build up of sludge in the motor will not allow the oil to make its way into the cam shaft resulting in engine seizure and you have to go buy another engine or another car. Bad luck for me!!
