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.

2005 Toyota RAV4 Owner Comments

RAV4 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,991 miles


Fuel hose broken without any reason I have known of. I drove my car in casual manner (short distance from work to home) with 7900 miles on it and didn't recall hitting anything hard underneath my car. Parked my car last Friday. On Sunday, my 05 Rav4 couldn't start and smelled gasoline. Looked down the vehicle and found out fuel hose was broken and leaking gasoline. Called firefighters to stop the fuel hose leakage. Towed my car to dealership, they said it needed to be replaced the whole fuel line. Consequences could be fatal if fire object close by. There may be a potential fault on the design of this vehicle because the fuel hose shouldn't be broken easier and caused the leak of gasoline.
