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.

Dear officer, I would like to bring your attention to a serious flaw with certain Toyota models related to excessive oil consumption. Bowing down to the thousands of consumer complaints early this year Toyota accepted that it is issue with their engine design which can put engine on fire or make the car completely useless after seize. Toyota indicated that they would provide parts early this spring, yet it is the end of June, and Toyota (a giant car manufacturer) still does not have parts to fix the serious problem Toyota consumers are suffering thru every day. The issue: Certain Toyota model cars burn excessive oil. The proof of issue(from internet) 1. Toyota engine excessive oil consumption www.toyotaproblems.com/trends 2. Toyota named in class action lawsuit over excessive oil usage gotaclassaction.com/ 3. excessive oil consumption on 2az-fe engine www.toyoheadquarters.com 4. class action lawsuit filed over Toyota oil consumption www.consumerclasslawyersblog.com/ 5. "all Toyota burn engine oil!" and "burning 1 litre of engine... https://gripevine.com/ the impact: Life endangerment, risk of engine fire, people left stranded in the middle of nowhere, constant strain of checking the oil every few days, financial losses to consumers and heavy impact on environmental pollution Toyota response: Delay in accepting the responsibility, cannot arrange parts for repair, test method puts consumer at risk. The request for solution: The american Toyota consumers are looking for the government concerned organization to take stringent actions against Toyota America to protect the lives and money against such practices and provide safe environment. If the governing bodies don't do anything, it will be encouragement for other car manufactures, and will have drastic impact on the lives of millions of american. Thank you!

Approximately one month ago the following warning signs appeared on my dash board: Check engine vsc 4WD maint reqd I went to see a mechanic right away. He told me that a part known as an air sensor had stopped working. He gave me the following identification for the part: 02 sensor bank1 sensor1 he also told me that I needed to order the part through the dealer on the internet; I was not successful for there was no one responding with having the orinal toyata part. Next I called a local Toyota dealer who told me that the part in question was on back order nationwide for a wait of at least 3 months! meanwhile, I am told thati should expect higher gas consumtions and other related problems until the part was replace. I, as I am sure many other car owner, am outraged to be told that I have to wait at least 3 months for a part and then be placed on a long waiting list. This is the kind of staff, I thought tht only happened in controlled economies! this is costing me money in higher gas consumtion while the company is nowhere to be found with a satisfactory explaination and apology to customers!

At approximately 81000 miles, rav-4 started to burn oil at a rate of two quarts per every 3000 miles. Now at 120,000 miles, it burns one quart every 1000 miles. By comparison, my 1987 Toyota Camry does not burn a drop.

RAV4

  • 45,099 miles
As of 9/16/14 our 2006 Rav4 V6 currently has 45,790 miles and we just got a diagnostic from a Toyota dealership service that this part is defective a charcoal canister and an B1S2 O2 sensor needs replacement. Me and my wife love the SUV but with such low miles I would not have expected for this to have happened. From my quick research, I understand this could cause more engine damage if not repaired, I see a decrease in miles per gallon and a rough idling. I wanted to know if there is a recall for this part which is a charcoal canister and the O2 sensor. Toyota wanted $1,303 total repair and for this low milage vehicle is not what I expect from a quality vehicle.
