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.

HS 250h

  • 1,200 miles


On at least three separate occasions, my Lexus Hs 250H has had a sensation of losing its brakes. Each occurrence happened while slowing to a stop on a bumpy road. As the brakes are applied to stop, if the car hits a pothole or bump, it feels as though I am on glare ice with no deceleration at all. The sensation lasts only a moment and then normal braking resumes. It seems to only happen at slow speeds on a bumpy road. In each case it was noticeable enough that my adrenaline kicked in. I have reported this to the dealer and to Lexus. No repairs or other actions have been taken yet.

HS 250h

  • 4,850 miles
Hello, I have a 2010 Lexus hs250H. The car is wonderful, but since it has recently started raining in my area, I have had several experiences when my right tires go over two small metal plates in the road near my house and I apply the brakes and the car seems to go out of control. It appears to seize and slip, and it is very frightening. As a result, I have been driving around the metal plates to avoid them. However, if I don't know the area I cannot always anticipate this type of problem. A second problem I have had with the car, is when I drive through a pothole in the road, it also appears to go out of control, surging and stopping. I consider these two situations to be safety issues, and I have never experienced them with any other cars I have driven in almost 35 years.
