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.

2015 Toyota RAV4 Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 172014

RAV4 4-cyl

  • 100 miles


The armrest above the center compartment between the driver and passenger has a light resistance to pressure. I was drive with my right arm resting on this and my wife needed to adjust her position in her seat. She leaned on the armrest and the armrest went sliding to the front and startled me. I had a 2014 avalon that had the same type armrest and never had a problem. The dealer looked at this and said all the Rav4's are like this and they couldn't do anything. The indents for the front and back of the armrest should be stronger and not so temperamental. There should be a product improvement bulletin to correct this problem.
