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.

Car has been serviced in two Lexus delaerships in the last 2 months....car started blinking the stability control lights and steering started intermittnetly working and the brakes were at 50%. I was able to the stop the car and shut it down when I restarted the no warning lights were on. The steering feel was back to normal and so were the brakes. I accelerated up to about 5 miles per hour...and the lights went off with alarms and the steering and brakes completely malfunctioned and would not work and I hit a parked car because of no ability to control the car. No warning signs before that. This was on a small city side street in front of a school

The front brake have been making a squiky nose when you pressed to stop the car. I called Lexus for a potential recall regarding this problem. Lexus tall me it was not on recall for this issue. For months we kept trying to find a solution for this problem we couldn't until a week ago the dealer have finally admited that the actuator assembly/ ABS brake module have failed and that should have never happened to this component of the vehicles and ask to me to call Lexus for a remedy.

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.
