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.

2006 Lexus IS 250 Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 052006

IS 250 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 11,000 miles


I bought my new car a IS250 Lexus on Oct 26, 2005. After 11K miles or so, my brake makes loud and consistent squeaking noise. I talked to the dealer and manufacturer many times, but they failed to resolve the issue, and state that it's normal. I think this is very serious for consumer, because it might fail someday and we don't even know it, but Lexus continue to refuse to fix the problems by saying it's normal for such car. As for the issue, I think it's life threatening for what it is use for.
