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.

2006 Lexus LX 470 Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 022006

LX 470 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

I lease a Lexus 400H and have just yesterday been informed that it is a drive by wire vehicle with no mechanical linkage between the steering wheel and the front tires. I am a ham radio operator and upon transmission the steering wheel shakes. No amount of filtering or other measures have alleviated the problem. I believe that the car is inherently dangerous and woould never have leased it if I had know that it was a drive by wire vehicle. Note that there are a large number of rf sources such as broadcast stations, tv stations, microwave links and aircraft radars that would affect the steering of this vehicle. Moreover, it does not appear that this hybrid meets the fcc emi standards. Please investigate.
