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.

2004 Toyota RAV4 Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 162006

RAV4 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 40,775 miles


While sitting in my driveway during my lunch hour, 1310 hours, the windshield cracked. The crack starts at the top passenger side, comes and at almost the middle of the passenger side, curves towards the driver's side. Car is 2 1/2 years old. Car was taken for service the next day. Toyota refuses replace the windshield. Four service tech's said they see no rock chips, and said the crack is due to factory failure. However, on the service report, it's written that crack is due to heat. I live in eureka, California, on the coast, where the high might be 63 degrees if we are lucky!
