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.

Submission from re 2007 Lexus LS460, has a defect which could cause a crash or could cause injury or death the consumer stated his local dealer has tried unsuccessfully to correct an intermittent and unpredictable hesitation on acceleration and then a sudden lurching forward. Recently, while driving 45 mph, as the consumer accelerated, the vehicle stalled for several seconds, the tachometer revved to 5000-6000 rpms as if the transmission was in neutral and then the vehicle suddenly and unexpectedly lurched forward, as if the gears re-engaged to about 65 mph. The same thing occurred many times before, but at lower speeds.
