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.

2008 Toyota RAV4 Owner Comments

problem #1

I was parked in a garage, I started my rav 4, put it in gear and gently, due to experience with acceleration problems, pressed the gas pedal. It suddenly jumped and accelerated causing the SUV to hit another vehicle. It could have been worse had I not turned the steering wheel and used the brake. Toyota told me there was nothing wrong. It has been an ongoing problem, but not to the extent it was this time causing an accident. Had my daughter not moved 2 minutes prior, she would have been pinned between cars. Someone is going to seriously get hurt if something isn't done about this.
