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 450h Owner Comments

While traveling at a rate of 40 mph I pressed the accelerator to go faster when suddenly the car hesitated and began jerking and slowing abruptly. Thank heavens no one was following me closely or I may have been rear ended. After this "brush with death experience, I have learned that Lexus has had numerous complaints about their engines and transmissions. I am very concerned about driving the vehicle after my experience and after reading about other Lexus owners who have had close brushes with accidents as well. Something must be done to hold this car maker accountable. It is clear at Lexus their priority is profits over the safety of their owners.
