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.

The design and failure of the rear brake calipers, the rear brake calipers constantly rust and seize making them stick and cause a safety issue because the brakes will lock and start smoking. Even after repair the brakes will seize again after a year or sometime sooner. It is a known defect by Lexus but still not covered as a recall/safety issue.

The Lexus dealer once again (the first instance was in December 2013 at 45,533 miles and required replacement of pads and rotors.) reported during routine maintenance that the rear brake caliper pins were seized and had to be cleaned and lubricated (neither action is a Lexus scheduled preventive maintenance activity.). as in the first instance, it is fortunate that no accident resulted from these seized calipers.

While undergoing normal preventive maintenance by the selling authorized Lexus dealer, the car was noted to have "... both rear caliper slides... seized" resulting in the need to "... replace(D) rear pads and rotors due to calipers being seized." The servicing dealer informed me that this is a common problem in all Lexus models that they service and, in their opinion due to inadequate lubrication of the rear caliper slides, which they are generally able to correct by removing and relubricating the slides or, if necessary, by replacing the calipers.
