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.

problem #1

IS 250 6-cyl

  • 50,350 miles
My navigation touch screen stopped working on my IS250 with normal consumer operation. I started noticing hundreds of other Lexus vehicle owners complaining about the same issue. They did nothing to cause this issue and maintain their cars well. In fact, all the service done on my car including a recent update to the navigation system driving directions has been done by the san diego Lexus dealership. They have been servicing my car since I purchased it from them new in 2008. In my research I have found that their is a defect in that there is a faulty connector on the touch panel. The touch panel is a 4-wire resistive panel, taped to the lcd display. There's a four wire ribbon cable that is improperly bonded to the touch panel. Lexus quoted me $2,800 to fix this problem that is a common problem and a defect in their manufacturing. In my opinion Lexus should take responsibility for this issue as they provided faulty equipment with hundreds of consumers having the same issue with Lexus. The consumer stated the dealer resolved the problem. The consumer would like the complaint, removed from the website. Updated 07/10/13
