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

problem #1

I have a 2001 Acura MDX that I purchased new. In July, I noticed small drips of oil under the vehicle. Upon getting it examined at a local mechanic, I discovered that the gas tank had developed a leak along its seam! I contacted the dealership(Acura of tempe) and they said this would not be covered under warranty. I also contacted my insurance company (ameriprise) and they said this would not be covered under comprehensive coverage and to them it appeared to be a manufacturing defect. Since the Acura dealership had quoted me a cost of repair that was more than 30% higher than my auto shop, I chose to go with the latter. I feel this defect is a manufacturing defect, and could have been a very serious hazard if left untreated. Acura should have paid for this repair. I would appreciate your suggestions / feedback: Do you know of other complaints along the same lines? note: I have 2 pictures of the gas tank showing the leaks that I can send you if you like.
