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.

To whom concern hi, my name is don martinez. I have a disconcerting and disappointing story to tell about buying a new Toyota. My friend purchased a 2010 Toyota Rav4 5-door 4X2 SUV ltd on 3/20/2010 and on 3/27/2010 the vehicle failed. The car hesitated to advance and after 2 or 3 more tries did not responded at all. So my friend called the dealer to have the dealer pick up the car. She was interested in knowing what was wrong with her new car. The car was picked up the same day 3/27/2010. On March 29, she called the dealer to find out about her new car's problem, and the salesman (harry zhu) told her they do not know what the problem was, but harry said, "the car needs a new engine". she loves the Rav4 and was convinced to ask for another Rav4, same model, same price; just another Rav4 sounds fair, sounds easy, for her. Now, my friend has no choice but to ask for no less than her money back. Her experienced has opened my eyes to the way that the Toyota dealership takes advantage of their customers. More people will know about this story and I know that is only one of many stories you hear, but I hope you will learn a lesson from this story. Customer service can either help or hinder your business and in this case bad customer service turned away a loyal Toyota customer who wanted nothing less but to drive her brand new Rav4.

I have a vibration when going between 62-70mph. Have no idea from what have taken it to the dealer, they balanced the tires, we had a private tire dealer check the balance, still there. The owner of our dealership called and said she test drove two other ones, same model as ours and they do it too. In fact she said one vibrates worse than ours. We are being told this is normal, but we know, that no vibration is normal.
