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.

2006 Toyota RAV4 Owner Comments

problem #3

  • 33,000 miles


I have a 2006 Toyota Rav4 with 33,167 miles. The ignition key is about to fall apart. All the covers for the push buttons on the key are falling apart. This just started about a month ago. I went to the dealer and I was informed the key was not covered under warranty and would cost $250 to replace.

2006 Toyota Rav4, Toyota has determined and issued a repair procedure for the fresh air ventilation inlet area as the source of the leak however has not fully disclosed or addressed the potential for mold or mildew growth that may be present as result of the failure. I am forwarding this complaint to your attention as a concern for all 2006 Rav4 owners that as a result of this leak could harm occupants that have respiratory diseases.
