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.

2000 Toyota RAV4 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 092014


  • Automatic transmission
  • 149,575 miles


My daughter was stuck on the Interstate in multiple lane traffic with her Rav4 and was almost hit by several cars awaiting a tow truck. She had a major oil spill that went into the lane beside her of oncoming traffic. Had she have been killed or hurt in any way, heads would be rolling at Toyota. She had considerable mileage (but not for a Toyota allegedly), but it was in great running condition.

She is a recent college grad and struggling as it is to start paying her student loans off. I am beyond pissed to think she has to go buy another car as this one is not even paid off yet!!!!!! I see on the website many, many, many complaints about this. Why not fix the problem and stand behind your product. Thank the good Lord above she is fine, but these are an inferior product for Toyota.
