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.

MDX 6-cyl

  • 174,096 miles


Vehicle was backed into garage parking space as usual by wife. Key removed, vehicle was thought to be in park. Parking brake not applied. Garage door was left open. 30 minutes later, vehicle was not in garage and was straight across the cul-de-sac at neighbors driveway 6' away from their car. Upon further inspection, minor damage and paint scrapes were observed at back of neighbors bumper and right front of the MDX. Plastic clip was observed on ground that attached plastic bumper to body of MDX. Shifter was found to be in reverse on MDX. Testing after the fact showed that the key can be removed while not in park. I noticed a recall starting with 2003 MDX of the key being removable while not in park. We have owned this vehicle since new and have been at same address.
