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.

Vehicle has been involved in multiple near misses resulting from lateral mirrors bulkiness and lack of visibility for driver when turning left or right in an intersection. The most recent incident resulted in a collision with another vehicle that had clear road right causing significant damage to both vehicles front ends, the deployment of the air bag system of the other vehicle. The position of the lateral mirrors which are huge and the roof support corner side bar of the vehicle makes it to have a blind spot where you simply are not able to see vehicle that is closely approaching in the other direction. In order to avoid this issue the driver needs to move side-front at all times when turning left or right.. there have been several multiple near misses because the extra precaution the driver has exercised. I believe this is an important safety concern that Lexus needs to take care of immediately.
