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.

When driving down the road at speeds over 35mph and a rear window is rolled down, with other windows up, there is a buffeting and feeling of pressure to your ears inside the vehicle.this can be very uncomfortable to the occupants inside the vehicle.I contacted Toyota and was told via email that this is normal in modern vehicles.

I have stated my complaint for the third time. Twice with clearwater Toyota and once with sun Toyota in holiday fl. But nothing comes of it. In one ear and out the other. Every morning, the side windows on our vehicle are wet with water droplets from natural morning dew. When I lower the window to clear them, it doesn't do it. Unlike all other cars I have owned or seen, the squeaky is in contact with the window which in turn "clears the windows". it is a definite dangerous situation. As I reach the point to make a left turn or a right turn I am confronted with a completely blind spot.I don't know if I clearly explained... it requires the driver to go out and clear the side windows before one can safely drive the car. I have measured the space between the glass and the rubber squeaky and it is as thick has a piece of paper folded in eight. A large space! when the window is raised, at the last fraction of an inch, before closing, it makes a quick jerk to come into contact with the squeaky. The sales person agreed the it was a fault but replied "that's how it is..." when I'm dropping off my daughter at school, in the mornings it's still dark out, and when I reach the point to turn I must lower my windows to get a visual. The dealers don't give a [xxx]! can you check into it? or do you just file information.... information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
