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.

Integra RS 2.25L V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 270,000 miles

The distributor died while I was driving on the freeway. Since they had to replace the whole distributor, not just the cap and rotor, it was quite costly - around $1600. The Honda mechanics said they usually don't see this failure. I hadn't replaced the cap and rotor for a while - maybe this caused the problem?
