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.

Takata recall bought this car from carmax and was aware there was a recall for the airbags. We were told to contact the company and we could have them replaced at a Lexus dealership. Every time I go online to see if the airbags are available I get a message stating "recall incomplete, remedy not yet available. " I have been trying to get this taken care of since August, this Is now November. Getting fed-up!

Takata recall the interim recall notice was sent out around may'16 when the recall started. Calling the dealership provided no information on when a fix will be available nor any additional remedy provided. This car is unsuitable for commuting with a passenger because "metal fragments could pass through the airbag cushion material, striking vehicle occupants, and result in serious injury or death". with such the potential for such a traumatic outcome, either a fix needs to be implemented immediately or rental cars should be made available to those who do not wish to put them or their passengers at risk. Without being able to determine how at risk a vehicle is for the inflator degredation, remedy options should be provided not only to those under immediate recall but for vehicles that are in the interim period (pre-recall) as well.

On June 8th of 2016 I was sitting at a red light and was rear-ended and pushed into the another vehicle causing extensive damage and total loss. None of my airbags were deployed and I was taken to the emergency room with neck left arm and back trauma. My passenger had neck sprain and a bruise on her thigh.

I am highly concerned and worried about this passenger airbag recall. When asked Lexus about the remedy, I was told that the remedy would not be available until December of 2016. This seems unreasonable. Also does this recall affect the driver's side" it seems unclear as the reports showed that those who were affected by the degraded airbags were in the driver's side. Can someone please look into this" thank you.

Takata recall - Lexus stated there is no time frame for a remedy and the manufacturer is trying to go bankrupt to avoid fixing the problem. They said it could be a couple of years at least until there is a remedy.

Takata recall plus the interior dash and interior side door panels are deteriorating. The front dash has an oily slick residue which glares into the front windshield making it dangerous to operate. The dealership stated that I am on the list as #139 and they've replaced 20 to date. This has been a known problem for years. At this rate and if history repeats itself neither will be remedied in my lifetime.

The airbag warning light came off and on 3 years or so ago when I had started the car and sometimes while driving. When I brought the car in to the dealer the warning light was off, and the dealer checked but said they could not find the code. At the time my car was still under extended warranty. Now the light has come on again just as I was driving out after the car was serviced by the same dealer. They checked the code and said I needed to replace the airbag wiring harness for $2,798. The dealer offered to pay half of the cost since I am no longer covered by the extended warranty but since this issue causes the airbag to not deploy in case of an accident I feel that the full cost should be covered by Lexus, and a recall done for all the models affected...updated 12/03/15
