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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2013 RAV4's top complaint is that the navigation screen is impossible to see in direct sunlight.

While certainly an annoyance, it's not a big deal in the world of car problems. Luckily the fix is a $10 anti-glare screen cover.

I leased 2013 Toyota Rav4, around 2900 miles the warning and indicating lights on the instrument panel lit up while I was driving. Took the car to the dealer who determined the cause was "some one hit ABS sensor and cut harness..." since the sensors were not under warranty, it will cost me $600 in repairs. The failed sensors are used for vehicle safety and traction control. I think that the cable harness should be designed to be better protected from road hazards and the customer should not be liable for Toyota design flaws. Plead find attached some supporting documents. Thank you,
