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.

2004 Lexus LX 470 Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 202010

LX 470 8-cyl

  • 118,000 miles


Check engine on with code P0171. The code has been on for over 6 months without any cause/reason. I have worked with Lexus and followed recommendations from Lexus without any success of resolving it. Lexus took a fuel sample in August 2010 and I have not received any responses from Lexus as of Nov. 15, 2010. Since the "check engine" light has been on regardless since Feb. 20, 2010, the function of "check engine" light is lost. This is a safety hazard as the driver will no longer receive any warning of any real potential problem with the vehicle. Updated 01/20/11 the consumer was informed the oxygen sensor needed to replaced. However, the check engine light illuminated again. The dealer has been unable to pinpoint the problem.
