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 went to get something out of the back of my Lexus, which was parked in my garage, and the handle to the rear door latch is "melted". I went to manually open the rear power door and the plastic or rubber that was covering the manual button was melted and sticky. I keep my car in my garage when I'm not running errands or at work. Not sure when it "melted" cause I usually use the power door button on my remote to open the rear door. I have read other complaints with the same issue.

My car is used to drop off and pick up children from school and grocery shopping, and it has never been in an accident; however, one day I had just got in the car and started it up (my adult son was in passenger seat) and the air bag light came on my dash and the passenger air bag light shows it is not on. My son weighs almost 200 pounds. We even had him get out of the car and sit back down again, thinking the seat didn't register for some reason, but nothing changed. This is a serious safety issue, as if ever involved in a crash, the airbag will not deploy to protect any passenger sitting in the front seat. Also, the dash of my car is cracking and huge spider web cracks have now begun to take over the dash on both passenger and driver side. I keep it garage most of the time so have no idea why this has started happening either. Can send photos if they are needed, just let me know.

The liftgate on our 2007 Lexus RX350 has a very hazardous safety issue. When pushing the auto liftgate button in the car to open the liftgate it opens for a couple of seconds but then without warning will start to shut on its own. There is no safety feature that keeps if from closing even if you are standing there emptying groceries, etc. Both my son and I almost got our heads crushed by the liftgate coming down on us. The car is stationary when this happens. It does not happen if the liftgate is opened manually. We feel that this is a huge saftety concern for anyone who does not know to move away because the liftgate will come right down on your head.

While driving straight on the road with no cars near by and no overpasses nor anything over head, I heard an extremely loud pop. My sun roof shattered into millions of pieces. The sun roof is still in tacked but cracked. I pulled over and inspected the car. The sun roof glass is lifted vertically as though the pressure due to the temperature from the outside and the inside of the car caused this to happen

I parked my car in a parking spot to do some errands and, before I could put the car in park and turn the car off, the car shot forward and went through some shrubs, across a walkway, and finally ran straight into a brick wall of one of the stores I was going to. Several bricks fell off the building and, needless to say, I was as shaken up as the building. Since there is a wide walkway between the shrubs and the building, if anyone had been going to or from the store, that person or persons would, in all likelihood, have been killed. There were several witnesses who saw my car pull into the space, come to a stop, and then fly across the shrubs, sidewalk and into the building. My foot never touched the accelerator at the time of the incident and, according to the company that repaired the car, there was no need to adjust/replace the floormat or the accelerator or the brakes.
