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.

I bought it on May 2015 from a dealership, it has now 150,000 miles on it, recently I saw the engine light and vsc light came on, I took it to auto zone to check the code, they told me that it is the sensor coolant system that must be replaced, I took it a mechanic shop to do it and that not solve the problem and the mechanic did a second check, he found that the radiator is crack, and that will cost me $600 and I still a loan balance for 12000 on

RX 330

  • 55,000 miles
At approximately 4 in afternoon, I had come to a complete stop in front of my townhouse. My foot was still on the brake from stopping (I was just about to put it in park and take out key and unfastened seat belt) when it lurched forward and started to accelerate. I tried to steer and pump the brakes but nothing worked. It was totally out of my control. The car lunged forward going over the side walk and into my front porch, directly hitting my wrought iron bannister. The distance from the parking place to the bannister is about 10 feet. The car acceleration stopped on impact. I immediately called my insurance co and I called the police and filled out a police report. I live across from our community swimming pool. Children are constantly walking on sidewalk in front of my house on way to pool. Neighbors walk by my house to walk their dogs as well. Someone could have easily been injured or killed. I have not driven the car since the event. Lexus usa and the dealership will not address the problem with me. I bought the car..used..only 6 months ago. My car was damaged in the front, and my wrought iron bannister was destroyed. My main concern is the fact that the car displayed unintended acceleration and is not safe for anyone to drive.
