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.

2004 Lexus GX 470 Owner Comments

problem #1

I have my vehicle in to 3 different Lexus dealership for a total 6 times. I have made the same complaint that the 2004 Lexus Gx 470 moves (steering wheel) with the crown in the road dramatically. The company and the dealer are no longer acknowledging the problem. The problems have been occuring since the day I took delivery and you never actually feel like you have control over the SUV. The steering wheel is very loose and you are consistenly moving it back and forth to keep the car centered. Very dangerous I have spoken the Lexus customer service over 20 times and they are non-responsive to my situation.
