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.

2005 Lexus RX 330 Owner Comments

problem #2

RX 330

  • 86,883 miles


Our Lexus had a bad roller bearing on the rear passenger's wheel. The internet (Lexus owners club) tells us that many other owners with this model have had the same problem in the same location. It is dangerous because the wheel can suddenly seize or fly off, causing loss of control. I hope you will require Lexus to recall and fix the cars that haven't failed yet, and to reimburse those who have had to have it fixed already.

problem #1

RX 330 6-cyl

  • 65,000 miles
The chrome in the interior of the wheels bubble and delaminate. This caused the tire to lose pressure slowly, until tire failure occurred. The tire failures rendered the tires irreparable, even if the tire was only 3 months old. So far this has occurred on three of the four wheels supplied by Lexus at the time of purchase. All failures have occurred within 6 months of each other. The Lexus has a low pressure warning indicator, but it has not activated during these times. The tire pressures are regularly checked.
