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.

problem #2

Oct 172010

Legend V6

  • Automatic transmission

Speedometer goes from 60 to 40 to 0 and back and forth. The gear indicator on the dash was flckering now it blinks steady.

Car still seems to run OK.

problem #1

Mar 172009

Legend L 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 128,000 miles

The speedometer would work one minute and the next it just goes down to zero. I had a problem trying to get an idea of my speed. I then started to pay attention to the RPM and compare the mph to where the RPM needle is. That way I was able to memorize how fast I'm going. But what I realize that when the speedometer needle is working my miles do too. If not? then nothing moves. I later found out that it's a typical problem for Legends and that it is the VSS and needs to be replaced. The part is around 90.00, the part is located underneath the car right next to the oil filter. There are Acura sites out there that will show and assist you how to DIY. Other than that? The car has been running very smooth with no problems.
