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.

ES 300

  • 70,000 miles


I have a 2001 Lexus 300. I have never ever had issues with it-except for 12-18 months ago- my mat got stuck. As I drove it keep at high speed and kept going faster- the brake pedal would not move as I pushed down. I pit my head down and pulled at the matt & unhooked the front hook under the seat. I thank god I was able to remove my mat- as of that day-I removed my mat & have ruined my carpet, but that is fine. I am surprised this recall is not for my make & model- when I heard the issues with the brought back that day- if I was unable to free the pedal, I do not know what would have happened- I would never had thought to hit the E brake or shut car down- and I put all my power on the brake & it would not work. All in all it is an excellent car!
