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.

2001 Acura MDX Owner Comments

A damage to the driver-side door lock renders the whole locking (and unlocking) mechanism unusable. My driver-side door handle got scraped in locked position, while the car was being driven. Due to the damage to the driver side lock, it could not be operated electrically or manually. On parking the car I managed to get out the passenger side door but on closing the same door, the electrical system locked the door automatically. Since none of the other doors, including the one on the trunk, has a mechanical lock, the car cannot now be unlocked. There is now no way of getting into the car, without which the damaged door cannot be repaired. Acura motors did not have a way out of the situation.
