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.

2005 Lexus ES 330 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 202012

ES 330 6-cyl

  • 55,000 miles


I received a safty recall notice from Lexus indicating my engine crankshft pulley may loose and cause loss of power steering. I called Lexus and they said I had to take the vehicle to a Lexus dealer. Since there isn't a Lexus dealer in my hometown they informed me that the closest dealers were at least 150 miles from my home. I bought the car at a local used car dealership that is no longer in business. I asked if they could certify my local Toyota dealer to do the inspection and they said no. If this defect is on my vehicle it would be unsafe to drive 150 miles to get to their certified dealer. If there is an accident on my way to the inspection who is liable? they will be. I want them to accomodate me by certifying the local Toyota dealer to do an inspection for me.
