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.

RAV4 6-cyl

  • 69,288 miles


Muffler & tailpipe and housing on my Rav4 are rusting extensively. Had dealer check it out. Recommends I replace my exhaust system. There were holes in my exhaust systems due to rust. Called and complained to Toyota headquarters. Unfortunately, they only offer a 3 yr/36,000 mile warranty. Case ref #1203230216. My car is only 5 yrs old!!! my exhaust system can fall off my Rav4 on the highway and cause an accident. Who is to blame in such a senario" Toyota motor company for making inferior exhaust systems" there is rust on garage floor where I park my Rav4!!!
