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.

LX 570

  • 19,100 miles


I own a 2008 Lexus LX570. I was in my driveway turning around and when I took my foot off of the gas pedal and on to the brake the car kept on accelerating. I put both feet on the brake and the car kept going forward until it rested on a large boulder. The damage to the car was only the front bumper since I was going very slowly at the time of the acceleration. I reported the problem to Lexus and they stated that they do not have any problems with the LX570 model. I have 20,000 miles on the car and this is the only time it has happened. There was nothing around the gas pedal that would have caused it to get stuck, so the problem had to be with the electronics.
