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.

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Rav4. The contact stated that the vehicle was taken to the dealer for NHTSA campaign id number: 11V245000 (air bag: Side window) to have the side air bags sensor replaced. The contact was made aware that the spiral cable failed as a result of the defective sensor. The manufacturer was contact who did not offer any assistance since the spiral cable was not included in the recall. The VIN was not available. The current mileage was 90,000. The consumer stated when the SRS light illuminated, she took the vehicle to the dealer. The dealer informed the her, the vehicle was under a recall for a defective side impact air bag ECM and they would run a diagnostic to see what error code was causing the activation of the warning light. The consumer received a call from the service dept, and they stated the vehicle was reporting two separate error codes; the first for the recalled ECM, which was replaced, and a second for a defective spiral cable, which was related to the air bag system, but not covered under the recall.

Toyota 2007 Rav4 with 20,000 miles, since I purchased has had some issues with the acceleration lurching forwrd both while barely touching the gas pedal or turning corners, and going up a small hill or a large hill. Ive still got the warranty till may2010, they checked it out and couldnt find anything wrong. Hello Toyota ! now im reading about all these transmission problems that Rav4 isnt disclosing to the public! the service knows about the problem so why wont they fix I " im on a disability and need safe reliable transportation.
