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.

Minimum visibility because of melting dashboard. The glare from the sun does not let you see.

I have a 2007 Lexus Is 250. I've had it for 7 years now and love everything about it. But about 2-3 years ago, the vinyl interior starting getting sticky. It's gotten worse that if you touch it the color comes off on your fingers. I have a big shiny area on the dashboard which reflects on the front windshield and makes visibility difficult. I know there's others here in South Florida with the same issue, that have gone to Lexus and have been told they have to pay to replace it, that it's not covered.

  • Manual transmission
  • 200 miles
Lexus is 250 manual transmission has so much vibration in rear view mirror, makes it nearly impossible to view out of at night. Lexus has attempted to fix this issue from the 2nd month I owned the vehicle and it still vibrates. Apparently Lexus had some sort of kit to reduce the vibration for is 250's that had excessive vibration in the mirror, however that did not relieve the vibration at all. All other Lexus loaner vehicles I have borrowed do not have this issue. I filed a report with " national dispute settlement ", since the meeting was during the day, the investigators could not see the excessive vibration that occurred while driving the vehicle at night and basically said the vibration was normal and due to road to conditions.
