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.

On July 24, 2014 I noticed the dashboard on the driver side was starting to look sticky and shiny like the passenger side, but didn't think anything of it until I started driving and could not see clearly out of the windshield because of the glare from the sticky and shiny dashboard. After further research I find that I am not the only consumer with this problem. In 2012 I first noticed the sticky and shiny dashboard only on the passenger side which I've mentioned the issue to the dealer who stated he hasn't heard about such issue. I will be bringing my car in as it is now affecting my ability to drive safely because of the glare on the windshield and will present them with the many other complaints seen here. Clearly this is a safety hazard that Lexus needs to issue a recall on before the entire dashboard melts and affects the airbags. I hope to see a resolution for all soon before a fatality from this defect becomes national news as the acceleration issue did.

While we driving down the turnpike heading into philadelphia, my wife tried to roll down her windows and then back up. As she did, the glass came off its track and almost popped out of the door. We were going about 70 mph. At this speed, that window may have come off and flown off our car, hitting another car. This would have been potentially fatal. The only reason it did not fly off, was my wife grabbed on to it while I pulled over immediately.

While parked, I let the front passenger window down. When letting the window up I heard a loud pop and the window tipped down in the front leaving a large gap. I was able to get it back in place manually. Took it to the Lexus dealership for service. Was told one of the plastic clips on the glass had broken and the window would have to be replaced. The warranty had expired so the total cost including the window tint was $646.67. I was told this is a recurring problem. I read if taken to a glass repair shop, there is a permanent fix.

Wife was operating the driver window in our Lexus ES 350. The driver window crashed down into the driver door panel momentarily startling her. She swerved into oncoming traffic. I had a technician pull off the door panel and the plastic mounting tabs on the window regulator and the plastic mounting tabs on the window had disintegrated. According to the Lexus owners web site this is a common problem on all 2007-2008 Lexus ES 350 models. Lexus will not cover this problem unless still under the 4 year warranty. See recall 08V16200 for similar problems.

On 07/2009 we took our 2007 Lexus ES350 in for service with 20K miles. It was being taken in for a brake problem, faulty visor and vehicle tilted/leaning. I was advised that the brakes had 1mm left (near brake failure). A Lexus tech replaced the brakes, visor and confirmed that the vehicle was tilted/leaning. Since then the vehicle returned several times for service including but not limited to the following: Brakes and tilt/leaning. The brakes were replaced again and another tech confirmed that the vehicle was tilted/leaning with visual and physical inspection. The tech measured from the wheel well to the ground. The dealer replaced the front suspension but the results were the same. The vehicle is still tilted/leaning and now Lexus is refusing to fix it and stated, they have done all they can do to fix it. After I complaint that the vehicle is unsafe a Corp field tech was sent to inspect the vehicle. The field tech also confirmed that the vehicle was tilted/leaning and stated that they don't currently have a remedy for this problem. The vehicle currently has 25K miles. Due to the statement above it leads me to believe the this is a manufacture defect.
