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.

2011 Lexus IS 250 Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 022011

IS 250 6-cyl

  • 2,800 miles


Drove over gravel on road, then steering column froze up. When brought to Lexus they said all the electrical steering components are broke. My insurance co. Said parts are made of plastic, and would take a minor occurrence to cause breakage to these necessary parts. Insurance co. Says it she be under warranty (I have less then 3,000 miles), but Lexus says no!
