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.

While driving 40 mph on a 45 mph 2 way lane, the car suddenly displayed warning "check ev system" advised me to pull over and inform dealership asap. I kept driving (about 1 mile from my home) within minute system seemed to restore itself. Only still displays "check ev system" this has happened 3 times in last 6 weeks. Toyota refuses to handle my case because of "after market modifications" which are not limited to : trailer hitch, volt/amp meter to monitor charging (very important to calculate how long you have to wait to charge an ev) both these things have absolutely nothing to do with the shown problems. This is after my car went back for the "safety recall" for exact the same issue. Toyota has implemented a software update to basically ignore the loss of signal from the speed measurement unit. It is obvious by the amount of people with the same cars that have this situation after the "recall fix" that there is something else seriously wrong. If this happens while on the freeway it could be a serious danger. For more incidents look at the forum: www.myrav4ev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?F=7&T=1770

I was driving to work and was approximately at 70 mph on California highway interstate 880 just near the junction on I580, all of a sudden the vehicle lost power and came to neutral and would not shift to drive, with a message on the dash board check ev soon take it to the nearest Toyota dealer.it was pretty scary and finally I managed to steer it to the left shoulder which was very narrow and half of my vehicle was still on the fast lane, easy chance of a crash. Called chp they had to stop the traffic and push me to the right shoulder, finally road side assistance showed up and towed it to oakland Toyota dealer. Its just a year old.
