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.

There is a problem with hesitation with my 2005 Lexus ES 330. When the accelerator is depressed in certain situations there is a lag before the engine responds. This is a serious safety issue with this automobile. Lexus said the vehicle checks out fine. I disagree and from what I read on the net this has been a problem in past years with Lexus automobiles.
