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.

GS 450h

  • 45,000 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Lexus GS350. During rainy weather or while the vehicle was at a car wash, water would leak into the headlight casing. The issue caused the fuses to fail. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where the headlights were replaced; however, the failure recurred. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The VIN was unknown. The approximate failure mileage was 45,000.

GS 450h

Passenger side headlight intermittently stops working while in motion and/or stopped. Trusted repair shop said headlight ballast is bad and that the driver's side ballast is starting to make noise as if it is going bad as well. They have repaired many Lexus cars with this problem. This is a known issue on this year, make and model of the car. In some cases, drivers have had both headlights shut off at once. Lexus requires a complete headlight assembly to replace the bad ballast, a cost of over $2500 for both sides. Given that this is a known problem and potentially dangerous should both headlights shut off at the same time while driving at night, I was surprised to find that there has never been a recall for this problem.

GS 450h 6-cyl

  • 80,000 miles
Both headlights went out while driving in the rain at night. I am told this is a very common problem, water gets into the sealed head lamp and shorts out the balist. I was almost hit as another car pulled out in front of me before I realized both head lights had shorted out. They turn back on once reset but go out with out warning.
