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.

The contact owns a 2004 Lexus GX470. The contact heard a loud noise coming from the vehicle. The dealer advised the contact that there were no recalls and offered no further assistance. The manufacturer had not been notified. The vehicle was taken to a private mechanic who informed the contact that the heat shield had detached from the vehicle because the bolts were worn. No repairs were performed. The current and failure mileages were 120,000. A local repair shop informed the consumer, the heat shield located above the muffler had fallen off and was trapped between the muffler and the floor pan of the vehicle. The vibration noise heard was the heat shield rattling on the muffler itself. Updated 06/05/12
