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 contact owns a 2008 Lexus LS460. The contact stated that the number 7 valve broke off into the engine and then broke a piston. This failure occurred after the contact had recall campaign 10V309000 repaired, which was related to the valve springs on the engine. The failure was diagnosed by the dealer and manufacturer, but they were unable to repair the failure. The VIN was not available. The failure and current mileages were 23000.

2008 Lexus 460 ls - complaint regarding danger of death due to carbon monoxide. This car is keyless which often results in the failure of their driver shutting off the engine which is at times parked inside an enclosed garage of a home. This occurred on three different occasions at my home. Thank god I had a carbon monoxide alarm in my home which alerted me of this problem. Lexus should have installed some sort of switch which would automatically shut off the engine when the driver seat has been unoccupied for fifteen minutes. Lexus states they have received many complaints throughout the country, however there is nothing they can do about this problem and danger. Existing cars should be recalled and repaired and this should be mandatory for all future cars with a keyless system.
