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.

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.

I went to for routine maintenance and they told me I needed some bulbs replaced. I agreed to pay for the bulb replacement. About 2 weeks later, I noticed condensation in the headlight. I went back to and indicated that there had not been a problem with my headlight until after they replaced the bulb. They stated they did not cause this and that "this condensation problem just sometimes happens with the rx's. water leaks into the headlight assembly". since it appears that Lexus knows this, they should fix it or have a recall. Stated that it would be "very expensive" to have the light fixed. I was thoroughly annoyed with them, (especially since I believe that they did indeed cause the issue), so I instead went to ). told me that my car was out of warranty, so it would cost $2,200 to fix the light. What?! I asked why it was going to be so ridiculously expensive. They stated because they have to take the entire light housing out and will need to remove part of the bumper to do this and replace some kind of computer chip. Now my light is almost burned out from the moisture, so I have no choice but to eventually pay and get it replaced. (I know nothing about cars or I'd try to do it myself, but I don't want to cause any additional issues). Since Lexus knows about this problem (both Lexus service stations stated "this is just something that happens with the rx"), they should create a fix for this, recall it, or at least make the replacement cost less expensive. I have owned 3 Lexus vehicles, but because of this issues, this may be my final Lexus! extraordinarily annoyed about this!!! information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6)

Drivers side headlamp lens develops condensation on the inside of the lens. The amount of condensation is increasing daily and cannot be dried out. This adversely affects the refraction of the headlamp beam which is both dangerous for the driver and oncoming traffic.

My Lexus 2007 rx 350 has heavy water condensation in the headlights in the driver side of the vehicle that is causing my headlights to flicker and shut off. Repeated calls to Lexus customer care has not resulted in anything. I took the vehicle to the dealer and got their vehicle inspector to inspect and got a detailed report endorsing my complaint that it is the problem with the Lexus headlight design that allows heavy water condensation causing my headlights to blow up. Very frustrated with the way Lexus people are behaving and this is not what you expect after you buy an expensive vehicle. This problem of theirs is directly putting me and other fellow motorists under risk.
