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.

2006 Lexus RX 400h Owner Comments

problem #2

Feb 102011

RX 400h 6-cyl

  • 51,000 miles


Component: Electrical system:alternator/generator/regulator summary: At a steady rate of speed on the hwy, the car surges and pulls and is impossible to maintain a smooth ride. When braking experience short bursts of acceleration. I am concerned as this seems to be leading to an inverter failure.

problem #1

Feb 062006

RX 400h 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,000 miles
The vehicle surges at a steady speed. I am most aware of the surging at 35-45 miles per hour. This did not happen until the vehicle had approximately 8,000 miles on it. I have been told there is no repair available and the Lexus is aware of this problem.
