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. 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.

2013 Toyota RAV4 Owner Comments

RAV4 4-cyl

  • 20,623 miles


When viewing my 2013 Rav4 from the rear, I noticed that the car seems tilted to the left, in other words the Rav4 sits higher on the right side than the left. I measured from the top of each wheel well to the ground and founds an almost 1" difference between the right side and the left on both the front and rear of the Rav4. The measurement was repeated on 3 different level surfaces with the same results. The Rav4 was returned to the dealer and they agreed. They wrote on the service invoice that this condition is "as designed at this time. Also compared to other like vehicles and found same." The service manager also stated that they found differences from 0" to 3/4" on other Rav4's and that there was no repair at this time. I am concerned because this condition might affect the handling of this vehicle or result in uneven tire wear.
