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.

Had recall on Toyota rav 4 for rear lower suspension arms. Took it back to the dealer for repair, they didn't have the parts and have to reschedule when the parts come in. This is what Toyota said will be done to repair it: If any rust is found on the internal threaded portion of the arm(s), the arm will be replaced. After the inspection or replacement the rear suspension alignment will be set and the arms will be sealed with an epoxy. Labels will also be applied stating the arm is no longer adjustable. How are alignments going to be made to the rear suspension if they are not adjustable" is it going to be at owners expense to replace both rear lower suspension arms to realign the rear end" the dealer couldn't answer that question. They just a voided me when we pick the car up later.

Received notification of recall due to rear lower suspension arms over 6 months ago. Have been waiting for remedy from Toyota which obviously never came. Starting to hear noise from the side and rear of vehicle. No accident as of yet, but am not willing to wait any longer. Completely irresponsible on Toyota's part. Shame on you - does someone have to get hurt or worse before you step up and fix this problem. My first and last Toyota buy.

Nothing has happened yet other than I think this has caused my tires to wear prematurely and am worried this repair is taking extremely long to get repaired. I need new tires and alignment but will need another when my repair gets done. I think Toyota should repair and replace alignment and tires for free. Tires did not wear even. Found out from dealer new tires are required. 6/32 outer edge of tire and center of tire but 2/32 on inner edge of tire.

I have taken my 1 month certified newly purchased vehicle for what I describe as brakes/suspension problems. According to the dealership, they cannot find any problems with the car. I have already stated that I drive with my grandkids in the car. They seem to ignore and find nothing wrong with the vehicle. I feel there is definitely a safety issue!
