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.

GX 470 GX V8

  • 77,000 miles


I purchased this vehicle about 6 years ago (2006) when it only had around 30,000 miles on it. I had to have the brakes done and the rotors turned less than a year later. Then a couple years after that - had to have the rotors turned again. Three years later - it is apparent they need turning again. I just read this has been a problem with other Lexus GX470s - not sure why, but you shouldn't have to turn your rotors every couple of years, especially when I average less than 20,000 a year on the vehicle - mostly highway mileage. It is a pain and not that cheap either at $200 to $300 a pop. Other than that - I love my GX 470. I just wish this was not an issue. My guess is they will tell me I will have to replace the rotors this time when I take it in since I know they have been turned at least two or three times now.... No telling how much that will cost me.
