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

MDX 6-cyl

Went to dealer and they said vehicle has bad engine mounts, and need to be replaced. Note that we also have a 2004 Honda Pilot, and the dealer also told us that some engine mounts needs replacement. We checked some blogs for Acura MDX and Honda Pilot owners, and found a lot of owners with same issues. Some are being replaced every two years. We onwed a V6 Toyota for 15 years, never had this issue. We hope NHTSA will check this, because it is a known issue to owners and Acura/Honda will never admit. I'm sure if NHTSA will get repair records for this "engine mount" issues, it will be a lot. From what I read, this affects drive shafts due to excessive movement of the engine.
