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.

RAV4 4WD 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Automatic transmission shift cable broken while selecting to park, this vehicle could roll forward or backward upon releasing the brake. If in case the cable broken without knowing while cruising I have no option to downshift in case of emergency on a downhill road or brake system failure. I've replaced the part at a cost of $196 + labor.
