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.

problem #2

RX 330 6-cyl

  • 41,720 miles


I have 41K miles on my car. Anti freeze has been dripping from the right side of the radiator same as other people. In contacting Lexus, being that the warranty has expired, they will charge to evaluate the problem and the repair estimate is 1K. How does Lexus know that the residual parts from 2004-05, which has been recalled, was not used during the 2006 assembly?
