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.

RX 330

  • 55,000 miles


Please looking into the Lexus RX330 models. I previously owned a 2005 Lexus RX330. I didn't experience the brake problems or acceleration. What I experienced that once I press on the brake at a red light or stop. The vehicle tend to still be moving slightly forward. Then I would have to press the brakes harder in order for the vehicle to come to a complete stop. This was at 5mph or less. I believe it's the computer controlled unit for the gas. You can actual feel in the break and engine that the vehicle does not want to come to a complete stop. I also went thru the recall to replace the cover on the driver side that the dealer stated it was causing the floor mat stuck to the gas pedal. In my opinion it's the cpu that may be causing the problem. You can hear and feel the engine still having a slight roar after the brake is pressed on, as if gas is still being applied or reduced in the engine.

RX 330

I have a 2005 Lexus RX330 which was a re-certified vehicle with 27,000 miles. The response to the accelerator pedal is erratic and causes unexpected surges. This happens less than 5 % of the time but I cannot tie it to any specific conditions (ie cold temperature, down-shift or up-shift, cornering, or road conditions. It occurs randomly but could be very dangerous depending on when it happens.
