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.

I bought this car brand new, only have 45,000 miles on it, my engine lite came on and when I took it into the dealer they said I had bent valves. I can understand if I missed a gear or raced the car I would have this problem, but I drive the car moderately and not aggressively, this leads me to think that it is a manufacturing defect and not user error. I'd be interested to hear how many other Acura/Honda owners have had similar complaints.
