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.

2002 Acura MDX Owner Comments

problem #3

May 102006


  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


On multiple occasions, on either wet or dry pavement, the car failed to stop and continued on dangerously into intersections. Once the brakes were either applied or pumped the car continued to slide for at least 30 feet when going slowly to come to a stop at a stop light. The dealer on each occasion told me that there was nothing wrong with the brakes.
