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.

The dashboard is cracking and looks to be expanding. This is happening on the passenger side airbag seam and it started about 3 years ago. I am very concern this may compromise the airbag and safety. I called my local Lexus dealership and corporate headquarters after hearing about many other models being replaced but my model is not on the list. On clublexus.com, many users are experiencing the same thing but I am not sure if they have file a vehicle complaint yet. Here is the link: www.clublexus.com/forums/ES300-and-ES330/657687-ES330-shrinking-dash-airbag-cover.html.
