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.

After a routine oil change and maintenance service at 94,000 I was informed that the power steering rack and pinion needs replacement for a fee of $1854, plus brake pad and replacement and resurfacing of the rear rotors for $385. I found no evidence of oil leakage on the garage floor.

I own a 2009 Lexus rx 350. When I am driving on a bumpy road and apply the brakes the car will not stop. They act like you are going into a skid. Shortly after purchasing the car I reported the problem to Lexus. They keep assuring me that there is nothing wrong with the vehicle. I have been lucky enough to avoid several near serious accidents. I have had to jump curbs on several occasions. I have rolled into the middle of intersections with cars coming at me in all directions
