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.

1998 Acura CL Owner Comments

CL 3.0L

  • Automatic transmission

I am used to the "click, click, click, click, click" when a battery is dead. This car didn't do that. Mainly because the battery has juice. When I try to start my car, it sounds like a fan whirring. Now, I read that back in 2003 Acura had a recall on the ignition switch for the 1998 Acura CL 3.0, so we will see. When I fix the problem, I will update this complaint.

Otherwise, I love my car. It's a 1998 and only has 73000+ miles on it. It's been a gem.
