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.

After this happened to me I've found numerous threads complaining about 2001 RX300 transmissions going out, transmission goes out at right about 100k miles. It seems to be a very common problem for this year, make and model. Please, before you purchase it, do some research on the transmissions!
