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.

problem #2

RAV4 4-cyl

  • 50,600 miles


The right rear wheel sensor failed on my 2006 Toyota Rav4 on 1/19/11. The part was back ordered to 2/24/11. I was assured by the dealer's service department that the car was safe to drive. That was not the case, however, when the left rear wheel sensor failed on 2/2/11, causing the car to become dangerous to drive, while I was on the road.
