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.

2003 Acura MDX Owner Comments

Hi, I don't know whether my issue is related with safety. My Acura MDX 2003 (35K mile) has a bad smell from the air conditioner. I brought it to local dealership (Acura of bellevue) in bellevue, wa and they spent 1 hour or so and they didn't know why it has a smell. They asked for $600. So I contacted Acura of usa but they didn't give any clear answer for my problem. So I complained about it. My question is that this bad smell from the air condition, is it under warranty? just asking for get help if you could provide me. Thanks so much for reading.
