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.

There is a problem with the power steering of the vehicle. Took it to the Lexus dealer who stated that there was a leak in the power steering system. I am not a tecnical person but was explicitly told that if I do not get it fixed the steerin wheel could get stuck leading to an accident.

The contact owns a 2005 Lexus RX330. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic and authorized dealer for routine maintenance. The technicians detected that the power steering internal seal was defective. The vehicle had not been repaired for the malfunction. The failure mileage was 61,000.

RX 330

  • 40,000 miles
During routine state inspection, dealer informed me the power steering rack was leaking and must be replaced. The cost to replace the rack is estimated at $1600. From reading similar stories for Lexus vehicles, I understand the leak could lead to catastrophic failure of the steering system and possible fires from fluids on the alternator.

Steering keeps getting locked up. This time that it happened, it would not reverse itself and had to have it towed into the Lexus dealership.
