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 melts and has a very gummy and sticky feel. Also it now has cracked and likely substantially reduce the value of the vehicle not to mention how terrible it looks.

2009 rx 350 lift gate rubber melted while vehicle parked in driveway in 88 degree heat North Florida. All previous posts by car owners who had same issue were told this was due to a chemical or electrical issue which I am now concerned may be a fire hazard. Rubber is dripping off onto back of my car, I am pregnant and do not want to touch this melted rubbery liquid and therefore cannot manually open my trunk. Have been told dealer will not cover the problem, which is clearly a defective material.

2009 Lexus 400H hybrid brakes disengage when braking over rough surface, it gives the impression of accelerating. I had this same problem with 2006 Lexus 400H, but the 2009 recently has been having more frequent problem with this situation.
