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.

2009 Lexus ES 350 Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 152009

ES 350

  • 1,200 miles


In a grocery store parking lot, had to swing wide to avoid a truck turning into a row of parked cars. In doing so, the right front tire ran over the last foot of a rounded curb island at about a walking speed. The sidewall of the tire experienced a 2 inch L shaped blowout. This tire was on a new car with less than 1200 miles. I have never in 50 years had a tire have this type of blowout with such a low speed curb rollover. There was nothing in this area to cause a puncture.
