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 received a recall notice from Toyota about 1 year ago and the part is still not available. The NHTSA recall is : 15V-577. This length of time is unacceptable.

My driver side sun visor hangs down about 1.5 inch from the ceiling all the time. It does not stay up close to the top at all and it blocks my view. It is hard to see the traffic light with it hanging down so I have to hold it up with one hand while driving. I hit my head on it a couple of times while getting into the car. I called Toyota and they told me that there is no recall on sun visors for rav 4. I will have to get it fixed from the dealer who charges approx. $150. I came across multiple complaints about the same problem from Rav4 and Camry owners. This is a very serious issue and it can cause accidents and head injuries. Toyota had a recall on visors for Camry and not for Rav4. I am deeply disappointed that Toyota is not taking any action on this issue.
