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 own this Lexus 2007 GX470, at 120,00 miles has a completely overhauled and now 143,000 miles all yellow warning lights illuminated that including "engine" the engine starts make noise and king of dragging somthing, after diagnostics. "the secondary air injection system switching valve stuck open both one and two" I called dealer and total parts cost me $1,200 not include labor yet. That's ridiculous.

GX 470 8-cyl

  • 56,500 miles
I am the owner of a 2006 Lexus GX470 (VIN [xxx]). a month or so ago, at or about 56,500 miles, the check engine light came on along with about three other yellow warning lights. Also, the engine went into a mode that barely allowed me to drive down the road. On or about January 27 of this year, I limped to the Lexus dealer for inspection. As the attached report indicates, my vehicle was diagnosed with a failure of the secondary air system with a repair estimate of $2,114.60. (see page 9 of the attached autopoint fitness inspection & treatment plan). After research, it appears that this problem is very common with this engine type. I would assert that mine is a defective vehicle. It seems the secondary air pump (part of the emissions system) is defective and deteriorates, causing the entire system to stop working. This then causes the engine control system to reduce the engine to a "limp mode" that is dangerous and dysfunctional.
