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.

Vehicle drives fine at low speeds. At highway speed 65 mph and up steering wheel feels like trying to move a spinning gyro. The vehicle wants to continue in the direction it is going. Requires both hands to make small corrections impossible to drive with one hand. Had Lexus investigate problem they recently gave up. This vehicle has had the problem since it was new. I have driven other GX460 vehicles without this problem. Vehicle now has 28,000 miles still same problem. We stopped driving this vehicle on the highway. We only use this vehicle around town works ok at low speeds.

New Lexus GX460 has a vibration in the steering wheel at freeway speed. The vibration can cause the vehicle to drift into the next lane. The dealer attempted to balance the existing wheels and tires two times. This did not work. The dealer then replaced the wheels and tires. This did not work. Dealer called Toyota tech. All steering, wheel, and suspension parts were checked and found to be ok. Car still has the same vibration, and is still at the dealer. Car is dangerous to drive in this condition.

2011 Lexus GX460 constant shaking/vibrations in the steering wheel mainly in the front end. All 5 tires replaced and switched to a different brand, 4wheel road force balance, rack and pinion steering adjusted which resulted in more "play" and less control off the truck, still shaking/vibrating remains and Lexus executives say there is no fix for it! sometimes it's so bad you wonder if the truck is going to shake off the road.
