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.

RX 300 RX 3.0L

My Lexus would not start I had it towed to Lexus shop and they cannot get it started either without replacing the whole computer and ignition switch with new keys. This is the second Lexus that I have had that has been reduced to worthless junk because of computer problems. Why would anyone spend more than the blue book value to repair a car? and Why Does Lexus have so many computer problems ? The other car was a SC430 that I spent over 3,000 to replace the whole AC system and it never fixed it due to computer problems. In over 50 years of owning cars Lexus has been the worst car I have owned. Lexus should give unlimited warranty on a computer that prevents the car from being started and becomes useless.
