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.

problem #3

Aug 012008

ES 350

  • 100 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Lexus ES-350. The contact lightly applied the brakes and the vehicle continued to slowly accelerate. The contact had to apply abrupt pressure to the brakes before coming to a complete stop. The contact stated the failure would occur whenever there was light pressure applied to the brakes. The dealer was unable to duplicate the failure and advised the vehicle was safe to drive. The manufacturer verified the dealer's diagnosis and would not provide any further assistance. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure persisted. The failure mileage was 100 and the current mileage was 18,700.
