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.

I have been waiting over 3 years to get the cracked / melting dashboard repaired under the recall I received over 3 years ago. I spoke to the local Lexus dealer and they said I was still # 49 in line to get this done. Really " after 3 years. How patient does one need to be " I believe a civil suit is in order here. With the time and trips to the dealer for this and it's still not handled - someone with some authority needs to press this issue with Lexus.

GX 470

  • 28,478 miles
I am the original owner of a GX470 Lexus. This vehicle along with other vehicles is garage kept. I don't drive some of my vehicles a lot as with my GX470 because of the gas mileage and difficulty in parking verses my C-class Mercedes Benz and other cars. But in March of this year I noticed severe cracking in my front dash while taking a long trip. The cracking is so severe that it goes across the front dash where the passenger's air bags are located. The cracking has also caused the speakers sound to be distorted. I contacted Lexus, but at the time I did not know that there are thousands of lexuses Gx470S that have the same exact problem. One of the things I would suggest is that those Lexus owners like myself that is going to file a lawsuit should get together. My email address is: [xxx] I also think that a way to get the addition of Lexus and potential Lexus buyers that have no idea that this problem that Kia owners don't have to face is the plan a protest of Lexus dealerships nationwide. Saturday is a big day in the car business; believe me I use to work in the industry. To have even just three to four protestors with signs warning potential Lexus customers of what Lexus owners are experiencing and the fact that Lexus is refusing to make this right will get Lexus attention. This is not a problem based on the consumer but Lexus and whatever company that they contracted with to produce these dash. I am personally going to sue Lexus. I would be willing to share my pleadings with anyone else, but I cannot give legal advise of any kind because I am not an attorney. Pleadings are public record.
