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.

2013 Acura ILX Owner Comments

ILX 4-cyl

Since one week after I purchased the Acura Ilx (car was new), I have heard a rattling, bumping sound coming from either the front or middle of the underneath area of the car. I have taken it to the Acura dealership where I purchased the vehicle and they tried 4 times to fix it, and although the dealership was very accommodating, they were unable to fix the vehicle and the sound remained unchanged. One of the times the vehicle was with them for over a month. The answer I received was that Acura is aware of the problem, they think it is the engine mount, but no fix is yet in sight. When I did an internet search of "Acura Ilx noise" I discovered that the acurazine (Ilx.acurazine.com) website had many reviews by individuals who have purchased the Ilx new and have the same problem. The sound has become progressively worse in the year I have had it and I am very concerned of the safety of this car, especially when driving the freeway. I had initially thought about turning the car over under the lemon law (I live in Nevada), but I was assured by Acura the problem would be fixed.
