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.

2009 Lexus LX 570 Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 182010

LX 570

  • 20,000 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Lexus LX570. While driving approximately 35 mph, the vehicle abnormally accelerated. The gear shift was placed into neutral and the vehicle stopped accelerating while the engine continued to exhibit unusually high rpms. Pressure was applied to the brake pedal but the vehicle would not stop until the ignition was turned off. Upon examination, the contact wanted to make note that the failure did not involve the floor mats. The police appeared on the scene to assist with pushing the vehicle off the roadway. The vehicle was neither examined for the cause of failure nor repaired. The failure and current mileage was 20,000.
