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.

2006 Lexus GS 300 Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 092006

GS 300 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 330 miles


On February 9, 2006, the fourth occurrence occurred. Each time, there was a strong smell of sulfur in the car with the windows closed. A day or a few days later, the check engine light went on (check vsc).I am concerned that there may also be carbon monoxide in the car at the same time. The dealer/service manager indicates that there is fuel in the engine oil. I do not know if it is safe to operate a brand new vehicle with fuel in the engine oil. Attempts have been made to correct the problem, parts replaced, but the problem has recurred four times with 1494 miles on the odometer.
