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.

The contact owns a 2005 Lexus RX330. Massive amounts of condensation in the headlamps caused the computer to fail. The computer operates the headlights. The contact called the manufacturer and was informed about the tsb. They also volunteered to pay $1,000 towards the cost of the repair. The current and failure mileages were 65,000.

Certified 2005 Lexus rx 330 has headlight condensation one week after I brought it home. Notified the dealer and they told me that its not covered under the certified warranty. I have the hid headlights that turn with you around corners, which will cost $1800 to replace! from what the dealer told me, they used to honor this defect but there were too many and it got too costly for them! a certified Lexus should not have defective headlights.

I have a 2005 Lexus RX330 in which when raining, headlight condensation occurs. I'm sure as the condensation worsens, the clear lens will start to yellow impairing visibility and ultimately hid lamp failure. Whenever it rains or I get a car wash it is most obvious and annoying. Lexus of bay ridge replaced only 1 light and now the other one is having the same problem.
