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.

15V285 recall notice was issued 6/15/15..as of 12/1/15 Lexus has not provided sufficient parts to the las vegas dealer to complete the repair.. 20 cars are ahead of my repair and it will be several weeks. Meanwhile no one should be in the passenger seat. Unacceptable!

Received safety recall notice for passenger side air bag. Safety recall warned not to use the passsenger side seat. Called dealer. Dealer advised that the first available time that they could fix the recall was June 1st, 2016. This renders this vehicle unless for almost a year. In the mean time what are supposed to drive?
