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.

The contact owns a 2009 Lexus IS250. The contact stated when driving at approximately 15 to 65 mph, the vehicle would abnormally jerk and shake when the transmission was shifting gears. The vehicle was taken to the dealer but the failure could not be duplicated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer three times yet the vehicle was never repaired. The dealer was able to locate a small surge from 35 to 45 mph but did nothing to correct the failure. The manufacturer would not provide any assistance. The failure mileage was 4,700 and the current was unknown.
