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.

LX 470

I had a 2005 Lexus 470 car and it was involved in two accidents that neither I nor the other driver could neither one has ever had an accident and I have been driving 35 years. The car in the first accident I do not even know what happened there was a collision on a road I take every day. The other car was totaled he had no skid marks and the Lexus tire was hit. No one ever knew what happened. Then last month my god son was driving on the la freeway in stop and go 5 miles an hour traffic. The car accelerated into the flatbed truck infront of him and he was ok but the car totaled. It is hard to hurt a Lexus 470 and the only explanation was that the car accelerated into the flatbed crushing the radiator. It was bizarre and the car ruined. I think Toyota and Lexus have not fully examined the Lexus car for the acceleration problem and they should. Anyone of the people involved could have been killed no one was driving fast and there was no explanation for the accidents except the Lexus malfunction.
