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 262006

ES 330 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 27,000 miles


I own a 2005 Lexus rx 330 with approximately 27,000 miles on it.--my right rear break light does not work consistently. Lindsay Lexus, alexandria, va, was told of the problem, checked it out and said there was nothing wrong with it. Subsequently, I have been pulled over by a police officer at night, as well as being told by folks who followed me at night, that the light was not operational. I again, told lindsay Lexus what was occurring and was told that unless it did not work when I brought it in, there was nothing they could do. However, they offered that I could purchase a new bulb for $300. Additionally, they said if it was not working when I brought it in that I would not have to pay. I contacted the Lexus headquarters in ca, and they offered no solution as well. I would speculate that I will be pulled over again by an officer, as the first officer told me it was a safety issue and to have it repaired. It seems to me that since it occasionally works, it might be an electrical problem. I do not understand why lindsay Lexus does not have the technology to locate the problem. The have placed the onus on the customer.
