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.

2008 Lexus RX400H Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 212009


  • 22,000 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Lexus Rx400H. While driving 25 mph and applying the brakes the lack of electricity in the battery caused the contact to apply excessive pressure to the brake pedal in order to stop the vehicle. Within minutes the brakes began to function normally since the battery recharged by pumping the brakes. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer twice for a diagnostic test and both times the dealer was unable to duplicate the failure. The contact is concerned that the failure could in the braking system could cause a crash to occur. The failure mileage was 22,000.
