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 330

  • 28,250 miles


Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6) 2005 Lexus model ES330(VIN#[xxx] ). after entering a parking space at a shopping mall at very slow speed. My Lexus accelerated forward with my foot hard pressed on the brake, jumping an island impacting head on with the car parked in front. This accident caused extensive damage on both cars. Replaced the hood, grid, both head lamps, and front bumper on my car. The passenger of the other car was not in the car and was shopping in the mall. Fortunately there were no personal injuries. I called my Lexus dealer (Lexus of silver spring, md and was told that the 2005 Lexus ES330 was not covered by Toyota's recall for braking or accelerator problems. Since then, I carefully pull the carpet back when start driving. Hope your investigation will include the 2005 Lexus ES330 model.
