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.

2003 Acura CL Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 012004

CL 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 400 miles


I have a 2003 Acura Cl S type at 400 miles a tire was Michelin tire was replaced for a bubble in the tire wall, the car is less than a year old and with 11,000 miles. I have replace two more tires for bubbles. Now a fourth tire has a bubble. I am told by Acura and Michelin that these are caused by pot holes. There is no rim damage and I was told by costco that this is a big problem with this type Acura because of suspension. This is not safe, some bubbles are on inside walls and can not be seen. I don't believe any testing was done. This tire should be outlawed. No one wants to take responsibility and I can not afford to replace tires every month these tire are brand new and Michelin is making a ton of money. I have read many complaints where people have crashed. I would like to avoid this....I would like either Michelin or Acura to address this problem or I would like to get out of my lease since I was not aware of the unsafe condition of my vehicle.
