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.

problem #1

LX 470 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,704 miles


Water was leaking into the back of the vehicle and soaking the interior. Upon inspection of the vehicle by the dealership, they thought the leak was due to the spoiler. They patched the holes in spoiler and replaced the entire hatch. But the leak recurred. Currently, dealership indicated that the water was seeping through the light in the third door hatch which had a leak.
