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 GS350. Consumer states that cruise control does not work when going up or down a hill or incline. The dealer informed the consumer that was the way the cruise control worked on the vehicle and it would not work while going up or down a hill, but the vehicle would accelerate or decelerate depending upon whether the vehicle was traveling up or down an incline. The consumer stated on three occasions, when the brake pedal was released the vehicle accelerated before contact was made with the gas pedal.
