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 safety recall notice (interim notice) from Toyota on 4/20/2016 regarding wiper motor link corrosion on my 2011 Toyota Rav4, NHTSA recall 15V-577.in the interim notice it states that an interim repair will be performed at no charge. I called two (2) Toyota dealers and both said I have to wait for the final repair notice. Yet in the Toyota letter to their dealers dated 2/25/2016 it clearly states that interim repairs will be made to vehicles listed in phase 2 (F2S), cold weather climate states. It also states that in the notice that I received. There appears to be some confusion between Toyota and their dealerships regarding interim repairs because what the dealers are saying is not what is written in the letter that I received.

I was notified of a safety recall that began on September 11, 2015. In November I called the local Toyota dealer and they said they should have the part soon and I needed to wait for the second letter. 7 months later the upgraded windshield wiper system is still unavailable. It is unacceptable that when someone's life may be on the line they appear to be unwilling to try to fix a potentially life threatening manufacturer defect. I have driven in a couple rainstorms since and there was one incident late last year where my windshield was completely covered by water and I could not see through for a second. Thankfully there was next to no traffic on the road and I had no vehicles in my immediate vicinity. I was going into a turn on the freeway with several lanes around me.

RAV4

  • 35,950 miles
When driving at temperatures below 32 degrees (freezing) the heating/cooling system does not work and the windshield and windows fog completely inside the vehicle. This creates an extremely dangerous visibility issue. The only way the vehicle can be driven in cold weather is if the defrost is on full blast with no heat on the feet. Even then, the rear windows are completely steamed up and the driver and front seat passenger windows are only partially clear. The vehicle has been in at least 7 times. If they have been unable to reproduce the problem they have been dismissive of the issue even though they have seen photos. When they have reproduced the problem they have not been able to identify a cause.
