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.

2005 Lexus GX 470 Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 262009

GX 470

  • 63,000 miles


My 2005 Lexus gx 470 has had 3 door actuators replaced already, and the 4th door actuator just went bad, along with 1 of the 3 that had just been replaced. The door actuators are what unlock the automatic doors. This could be a safety issue because the only door that opens with a key is the driver door. If someone needed to enter the car quickly to assist someone at any location other that the driver location, it could cause a problem. This occurs on a daily basis and I suspect I'm not the only gx 470 owner who has had the problem. It seems that there are defective actuators being installed by Lexus and although the likelihood of injury is fairly low, it could be a problem in an emergency situation.
