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.

2004 Lexus RX 330 Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 012009

RX 330 V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 76,000 miles


I bought the RX used with 30K miles. I wanted standard alloy wheels but this one is loaded with chrome wheels. When, at 70K or so, I noticed I was filling two tires every other day, I took the car to my (20 years) mechanic. He told me that there were tiny fractures in the chrome finish and all 4 wheels were leaking air. The only solution he offered was to replace the wheels. i hate using Fix-a-Flat, but as opposed to a new set of Lexus wheels, it's a reasonable solution. Note that the main issue is that it's impossible to balance the wheels now since the goop inside moves around.
