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.

GS 300

  • 59,000 miles
My 2006 Lexus GS300 is consuming oil. I have taken the car to the Lexus dealer 4 times. The car is still under warranty and there is not anything being done to correct the problem. I purchased the car in August 2008. This problem occurred 18 months after I purchased the car. I continue to get sent away without an answer to the problem. From my research the problem are the rings. One of the Lexus technicians accidentally stated that the last time I took the car in. The car is consuming 1-2 pints of oil a month. There has not been anything done to correct the problem.
