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.

2001 Lexus LS 430 Owner Comments

problem #2

The driver/owner of the Lexus ls 430 was pulling in to a parking spot behind another car at a private club. It was straight in parking behind a GMC Yukon. In pulling into the spot, the right rear tire went over a curb, and suddenly the car accelerated like a rocket. The driver stepped on the brake and nothing would stop it. Since the car was only about one foot away from the parked Yukon, the Lexus was stopped by the impact. The car was put in park and the engine turned off. Air bag did not deploy. Damage was done to rear bumper of the Yukon and the front bumper of the Lexus as well as an A/M reinforcement beam and other external damage. As of this date, damage to the engine of the Lexus is undetermined.

LS 430 8-cyl

In the course of opening the closed car trunk lid in order to retrieve the groceries that were inside the trunk, , I pulled it up by its lower edge using the ring finger of my right hand. Without warning or reason for it to do so, the electric automatic power trunk lid closer mechanism operated and shut the lid, crushing and mangling my finger bone and finger nail, and causing excruciating pain and permanent disfigurement. I am told by the doctor who has been treating my finger that the finger soreness and pain is also a permanent condition.
