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 brakes did not work properly. The brakes were soft and mushy. It was like pushing on a pillow. It was hard to judge if they were going to work. Took the vehicle to the dealer, and said everything was normal. Have another Lexus and it did not do this. Started noticing this on March 30, 2005. Rear ended another vehicle.
