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.

2009 Lexus LS 460 Owner Comments

problem #1

LS 460 8-cyl

  • 38,500 miles


Braking, at times, is irregular, during normal operating conditions. Feels as if the braking system is misreading data. Took car to Lexus dealer about 2-2.5 months ago and told rotors were a bit warped. Dealer turned rotors and said everything should be fine. Problem did not fully resolve. About a week ago, noticed same issues and returned to dealer who informed me that the rotors needed turning again and that they could see a depression on one rotor made from the brake pad. I was informed that the rotors can get hot in traffic and I likely pressed too hard on them in traffic. However, this occurred during the months of mid-February through April and climate has been moderate. Between these two visits, I had driven approximately 4K miles and I have not ridden brakes unduly hard. After most recent visit to dealer, braking is not always smooth and feels like a control module is not calibrating the braking pressure correctly causing improper pressure on rotors and periodic irregularity when braking.
