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.

Incident no injuries so far I own a 2006 Toyota Rav4 purchased in Mexico serial# tmzd31V865021536 there are two incidents reported with dealer in Mexico but no response at all: 1. the passanger seat excesively vibrates and wobbles when nobody is seated, I do not know if that poses a risk; I have had three previuosly new vehicles and never I have seen a seen vibrate and make noise and rattles by itself when you are on the road and noone is seated. 2. water leak from the heba or aircondition unit, I have at least 4 instances in which water leaks fom the ip or dash, the water posses a risk of electrica short or major mailfunction, is comming from inside the dashboard in the passanger side ! please help, dealer do nothing, I don't know if this posses a risk my guess is yes. I'm reporting here because in Mexico there is not an entity as this one and this vehicle is also sold over the usa. The vehicle was manufactured over Japan and is the very same that Toyota sells in America.

- the contact owns a 2006 Rav4. The 2nd seat did not lock in place. This seat was replaced by the dealer on 4/2006. Since 12/09/06 the failure has reoccurred and has not been repaired. The dealer stated that the track was grinding away and the hinge broken again. The dealer called weekly to inform her that the part wasn't available.
