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

LX 470 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6 miles


I purchased a new 2004 Lexus LX470. At the 1000 mile checkup, I mentioned to the service writer that I was not able to fill the gas tank up all the way. He responded by telling me that it usually *works it's way out*. a few thousand miles later, I was only able to fill up the gas tank 3/4 of the way. I brought the car into to Lexus of pembroke pines, where they kept my car for 2 days and replaced some parts. Upon filling up the next time, it still only filled up 3/4 of the way. They have now literally replaced every part having to do with the gas tank without any luck, and have now told me that they have to replace the gas tank entirely. They have also told me that it is on *back order*. my car has now been sitting there almost 2 weeks, and I'm now afraid of the car...afraid that there is a defect that could do harm.
