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.

I had both front and back brakes replaced….general maintenance once a car has 100K miles right? Well they would NOT STOP squeaking…….took it back to the repair shop over and over…they finally said we've done all we can, you just have to live with it. Not going to, so I took it to Lexus and for the 4th time they tell me……"it's because you didn't replace them with GENUINE Lexus parts. I paid ANOTHER $427 to replace them with the Lexus parts and sure enough….no squeaking.

Moral of the stories I have found with what seems like most everything with this vehicle is that you MUST replace with Lexus parts or the problems may not be resolved.
