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.

2008 Lexus GX 470 Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 152008

GX 470 4WD 8-cyl

  • 2,000 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Lexus gx 470. He had to use great force to the brake pedal, in order for the vehicle to stop. The vehicle was taken to the dealership and he was advised that there was nothing wrong with the vehicle. A couple months later, an identical failure occurred. Consequently he rear-ended another vehicle. A police report was filed. He had the vehicle towed to the dealership but the technician could not locate the cause of the failure. The vehicle was repaired by the insurance company. The current mileage was approximately 6,000. The failure mileage was approximately 2,000. The consumer stated as he exited a parking lot, he realized he could not stop the vehicle, so he made a sharp turn into a landscape of an establishment and hit a parked car. The consumer stated he experienced a similar incident six months prior. Updated 04/23/10.
