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.

We bought a Lexus 450H 3 month ago. On last Saturday, when the car hit curb at starting speed, the steer wheel turns 90 degree. The left front tire has only very small impact, some dust mark can be easily wiped off. The car is still drivable, but we are afraid that this car may loss control very easily, especially when it is off road on bumpy road. Dealer is still talking with the factory to check whether the factory warranty will cover the damage.

Lexus hybrid SUV 2010 rx450H. Car was in snow setting and when I tried to brake on a light snow surface, there was no response from the brakes and I also was unable to steer. I continued forward until I reached clear pavement and was then able to brake. This happened 3 times today under the same conditions. Luckily no cars were coming or I would have been hit broadside on a busy street.

The contact owns a 2010 Lexus RX458. Whenever the steering base was adjusted an item could fall between the steering base and it prevented the contact from make a left or right turn. The contact is concerned about the safety risk since a part of his key chain was caught in the steering wheel. The current and failure mileages were 40.
