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.

2002 Lexus LX 470 Owner Comments

problem #1

LX 470

  • Automatic transmission
  • 30,800 miles


While driving 70 mph on the highway traction warning indicator illuminated, and the vehicle lost brake power and steering for a period of one minute. During that time vehicle swerved left to right, but did not come in contact with any other vehicles or objects on the road. Traction light went off, and vehicle returned to normal. The vehicle was taken to a dealer, who did a diagnostic test. It was found that hydraulic unit on the brake booster was the cause of the problem, and was replaced.
