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.

The dashboard on my Lexus RX350 has cracked in 4 places. Of serious concern is the multiple cracks on the glove compartment on the passenger side that houses the airbags. I have addressed this with Lexus and they refuse to replace the dashboard. They offered a 25% on the repair. This is a major problem occurring all over the world and Lexus/Toyota is refusing to address it because defects are not repaired after the warranty expires. It is a safety concern of the highest order and I am requesting the NHTSA order a recall on all makes and models that have cracked dashboards. Thank you.

The passenger side airbag light is always saying off and displaying an icon on the instrument panel. This has been in the shop for at least 6 times over the past 4-5 months. It was last in the shop in January 2010 where they kept it for about 3 weeks and replaced the seat and the sensors.... we thought this would resolve the problem... but the light came on again this evening.
