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 own a Toyota rav 4 from 2008. My brake pedal goes all the way to the floor while applying brakes. It have the pump the brakes several times before the vehicle comes to a stop. I have been constantly complaining it to the dealerships about the issue but they have not fixed it yet. All the time the dealership keeps telling that we will get back to you or report it to the representative of Toyota. I and my wife have been scared to drive this car with our two children on board. We bought this SUV as a family car but not able to drive it with peace of mind. We need some help to get this issue fixed. Some of the dealers get back to me saying "this issue has been there" either sell it or we cannot do anything. Make : toyotayear:2008 model : rav 4

My Toyota rav 4, 2008 model accelerated while I pressed on the brake pedal. The harder I went down on the brakes the more the engine revved.
