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.

Tires had to be replaced at 37K because they were dry rotted. I replaced the tires per the tire warranty with the same tires and at 95K miles they are again dry rotted. I recommend that Toyota stop putting toyo tires on its Rav4S. I have also had to replace the Toyota issued battery two times in the vehicle and it is only 7 years old.

  • 20,000 miles
The contact rented a 2004 Toyota rav 4. while driving 40 mph in the snow, he tried to make a turn and was unable to do so because of the bald tires on the vehicle. The contact was able to drive 30 miles before the tire blew out. The vehicle slide across the road and came to an abrupt stop. The rental Agency towed the vehicle but did not provide another rental. The contact is concerned that the rental vehicle should have been thoroughly inspected before he rented it. The manager advised him that he would look into the rental vehicle failure. The rental vehicle indicated that it was inspected on 2/11/10 and the incident occurred 5 days after the inspection. The VIN was not available. The failure mileage was 20000.
