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.

GS 350 6-cyl

I have had my Lexus for since 7/2009 in Nov 2010 and Feb 2011 I have had to pay for several wheel alignments (frt and back) by the dealership in cerritos, ca.. I have had my tire replaced approximately 3 times and rotated them regularly. Oakhama tire that came with the vehicle are very expensive and have now decided to go with bridestone tire to lower my expenses. I do drive alot but do not drive freeway on a daily basis to and from work, but do drive freeway in many occasions.. the suspension continues to pull to the rt and tires continue to wear in the inside, both times to the wire. And now again after driving to laughlin on 7/3/12--7//7/12 I noticed when I returned the far inside of my tires were worn to the metal treads again. I am replacing all for tires on 7/12/12 and need another alignments in the frt and the back. It just is not seem right that brakes and suspensions are continues maintenance issue on a yearly basics. I am a middle aged grandma and have my grandkids in my car all the time and maintain my vehicle per manufacture requirements. Brakes have been replaced 4 times frt and back..

Lexus GS350 tire wear. Prior to 40000 miles, front tires showed wear on inside edges. Veh. Aligned, tire wear continued. At 46000 miles tires worn down beyond wear indicators on inside edges only. Replaced tires, alignment checked. Lexus advised that alignment was not bad. So why are the tires wearing out on the inside areas?

My 2008 Lexus GS350 is one of, apparently, many Lexus models that have no camber adjustment capability front or rear rendering wheels to progress to the point of misalignment that excessive inside tire wear occurs and cannot be corrected. This tire wear left unnoticed, due to its concealment from view on the inside portion of the tire, is a safety hazard. The tires can wear unnoticed to the point of failure causing injury or death. My GS350, that I bought new, 1/25/08, has both rightside wheels out of alignment with no way to achieve proper alignment. Inside tire wear is already apparent. Vehicle has only 14,000 miles on it and with trunk and backseat empty of any added weight of cargo or passengers (which would only exacerbate the problem). Even if empty, normal vehicle aging exacerbates the problem. Inability to properly align wheels is unacceptable. This is a safety issue!
