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.

1999 Toyota RAV4 Owner Comments

RAV4 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 99,421 miles


I have a 1999 Rav4 that just rolled over 100000 miles. It needed some work on the front brakes. I took off the wheels on the front and saw that the WHOLE front end was completely rusted through. The sub frame, control arms, the whole suspension was nothing but rust. The sub frame was the consistency of graham crackers. The condition of the vehicle; besides the rust, was immaculate. This vehicle is a ticking time bomb. I am afraid to drive it away from the mechanics shop. I called Toyota about it and was told to get lost.
