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.

2002 Lexus IS 300 Owner Comments

problem #1

IS 300

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,000 miles


The sunroof/moonroof creaks and crackles. This is not the normal wear and tear. The noise started after 5000 miles on the car. Lexus dealership where I went for service had delay this back and back. They once attempted to fix it but made it worse. There are many users ( with the same problems. This is so annoying that it's like buying a Toyota corolla. The same sound applies to the seat belt buckle; I wonder if this is a safety issue.
