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.

About 3-4 times a day when I'm driving freeway my car will let off a roton egg smell. I was told by a mechanic it might be my cytalist converter but when checked it passed.

In late 2012 took my wife's Is 250 to the Lexus dealership due to heavy raw gas smell. The Lexus dealer in NJ stated that the issue was related to old spark plugs...had my first tune up for the vehicle at 100K miles. Well the smell didn't go away. We recently moved to fl and took the vehicle to a fl Lexus dealership. This time we forced them to hold the car over night as the raw gas smell is prominent in the a.M., then goes away. They found the fuel hose/fuel gasket from the engine to the fuel tank was leaking. Why couldn't the other dealer figure this out? looking up complaints on this web site suggests the fuel smell issue is common for the '06 Is 250 model. This was a very dangerous situation with my wife and 2 year daughter traveling in the vehicle on a daily basis. Shame on you Lexus. There should be a recall for '06 Is 250. Stop being cheap!! cost us $1,250-1,500.
