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.

I have had a newborn baby and this car has cut off while driving leaveing my family extremel unsafe. The transmission is being replaced under the extended warranty I had to purchase. Acura has refused to buy the car back or give me fair market value on trade. They have also told me the problem needs to addressed with the dealership. Please help.
