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.

2002 Lexus RX 300 Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 012012

RX 300 RX 3.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles


Bought this nice used RX 300 from the Mercedes Benz dealer in Naperville and saw the display that said "disk not found" which I took as getting a CD out of the owners manual and inserting it. The M-B salesman said, "oh yeah that is what it probably is." Turns out I learn that the NAV system isn't reading the CD that is integral to the unit and the whole thing needs to be replaced. The biggest problem is the display shows the same message and overrides any information on the display like what the car is doing (temp, fan operation, compass, radio stations, and vital information. I was told this is a common problem with factory NAV systems in Lexus' and Acura's. Don't ya just love it If anyone has any other solution to override the display it is very welcome.
