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.

In 2005 I bought the Lexus 400 hybrid. I immediately detected a problem with the brakes - there was a hesitation when depressed and then a second or two it would engage. The dealer told me that I needed to "get used to hybrid driving." When I brought it in for service in March of 2006 I again told the dealer that the breaks were not right. They did their assessment and told me that this is the way it is. Now hearing all the problems with Toyota and Lexus I think you should be aware of this. I recently wrote to Lexus and they immediately brought my car in and are keeping it for further investigation. I do not know what they will find or what they will ultimately tell me.
