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

Jun 062005

MDX 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

I own a 2001 MDX (first year release) and we love it! the reason for my complaint is that when having routine service today at my Acura dealer (leith Acura in cary, nc), they noticed that one of the alloy wheels has a crack that appears to run across the back of one 'pillar' of the wheel and toward the front facing on both sides of that spoke or pilar. I've never had such a problem with any alloy wheel in 35 years of car ownership and wouldn't expect it particularly with a luxury vehicle such as the Acura MDX. The dealer would not offer any assistance other than to sell me a new wheel. I want to know if Acura will warranty the wheel, as this appears to be a real anomaly. There is no indication of impact to the wheel which might have caused the damage. Please advise.
