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.

Shortly after driving it off the lot, we began noticing a clunk after you took your foot off the brake after a stop. Dealer denied any problem in the model until we got mad, and talked and talked to their head technician. He described the problem perfectly without even riding in the vehicle, then told us that all the GX470's were doing it. This must mean it is a manufacturer defect, and he says there is no "fix" for it right now, but they are working on it because they have had so many complaints.
