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.

I am the original owner of this Rav4. About a month ago the front-passenger side seat belt began shredding. This seat is used very little. I am the main driver. Since then every time it is used it shreds more & in more places. I think it is defective webbing. Toyota says it is not under any warranty. I can't believe that something this important & required to use by law is not warranted by the manufacturer! if you don't know that a seat belt will not come apart when needed in a accident, what about other safety equipment?

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Rav4. The contact stated that when applying the brakes, the passenger side seat belt would tighten to the point of choking the passenger. The contact mentioned that the only way to temporarily remedy the failure was to release the seat belt. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who was unable to duplicate the failure. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure and the vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 12,000 and the current mileage was 18,000.

RAV4

  • 66,650 miles
On July 20, 2010 I was driving my 2007 Toyota Rav4 when I was hit by another car at a high rate of speed. My seat belt failed to restrain me and I hit my head, requiring stitches and a cat scan. My car is currently at a collision center waiting to be evaluated. I have not previously had any incidents where my seat belt had a reason to restrain me, so I do not know if this is an isolated incident or a possible seat belt defect.
