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.

problem #1

Sep 112013

RX 300 RS 4.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 189,000 miles


I have only had the car for a year running perfect no problems when all of a sudden it would not go into reverse, no warning lights came on. When finally got car moving forward by pushing it, it drove ok just jerked from hardly any miles to quickly accelerating to 60. I have been on several sites and this is a major problem for a lot of owners. Toyota should do a recall because the transmission rebuilt cost approx. $3500 and the blue book value is less than that. I will never by a Toyota car ever again.
