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.

For several years now my dashboard has been very sticky in the daytime which causes a very bright reflection / glare. The side door panels also are like deteriorating and easily scratch and peel off. The vehicle is very sticky and leaves a black / dirty mark on your hand if touched.

Approximately 3 years after purchasing this vehicle, the dashboard and the doors started to get very sticky. When I inquire about this with the dealer in March of 2012 I was told there was nothing they could do, that I needed to have it replaced at my own cost. The problem continues to get worse as the dashboard/doors are melting and are also cracking.

The door panels from front and passenger side are melting very bad. If I stick my nail by mistake, nail goes through and I get the sticky black rubbery material in nail. I pay too much for the car and Lexus only replace the dash board because it was also melting.
