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.

IS 250

Lexus IS250. Drive shaft came off. I had an accident on inter-state 75/85 North bound in downtown atlanta around exit 248B. The front driver side wheel came off in the middle of highway. I did not hit any car except the broken tire hit concrete wall and stopped against concrete wall. I reported this issue to Toyota immediately but it took them 3 months to inspect the car. Since I can not afford to let it sat in collision center for a while, I had to repaired. By the time, they inspected on Nov. 25, 2009. It got all repaired. I did show picture to them. However, Lexus refuse to offer any assistance after inspection. Lexus said that I could hit something that it's why my rim was damaged. Of course, my rim was damaged because it hit concrete wall after it came off. Those pictures showed that I did not hit any where (including front bumper). Atlanta police came immediately since this accidents was on interstate. However, according to him that I don;T need to file report because there is no other party or property damage. It was only my car. I went to hospital for neck check out. X ray did show something unusual but my own insurance covered the charge. Please review and see if any related incident to prevent future issue.
