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.

2007 Lexus IS 250 Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 012011

IS 250 6-cyl

  • 101,306 miles


The engine upon cold start up makes a rattling noise and is very loud. Lexus in September recalled the Lexus is 350 for the same reason and they said the car was unsafe to drive. However, I called Lexus customer satisfaction and they diagnosed it as the same issue at my dealership, but would not correct the problem. Also, back in March the vehicle smelt like raw gasoline, so I took it to the dealer and it was leaking gas in the engine compartment. The dealer told me due to the gas vapor, which is extremely flammable that the car could have exploded. However, Lexus would not cover this safety issue under warranty either. This vehicle has been a death trap from day one. It has also been recalled for the faulty gas pedal, brakes working improperly, other fuel line issues other than I mentioned, and even the windshield wipers.
