YOUR HELP IS NEEDED!!!

FILE A COMPLAINT about the BRAKE ACTUATOR with NHTSA, even if you have already had the problem fixed under warranty, they need to know about it.
Even if you already paid out of pocket, they need to know about it, and you may get reimbursed if a recall goes ahead.

Lexus knows this is a problem. They need to step up to the plate.

I called the NHTSA today and they do not have one single complaint for this issue (they do now ).
If we want to make Lexus cover it we ALL need to file a complaint with the NHTSA.

If you have/had a problem with the brake actuator go to http://www.nhtsa.gov/Vehicle+Safety/Recalls+&+Defects
and file a complaint (click at the top right of the screen "file a complaint")
Your information will not be given to Lexus.

Complaint filed. Took 10 min. if that. Has anyone done paid for the repair out of pocket? If so what is the cost? i have a 2007 with 98k. Not sure if I even want to waste my time asking for a good will?

Yeah, why waste your valuable time for a shot at not having to write a $3,000 check? Get that pen out...

You're right... 3k is what I usually tip my valet attendant to park the LS in a good spot... so yeah I wont bother with the good will... straight to the service department... at least I will get a free car wash with extra swirl marks and tire shine on the dashboard!
