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

problem #1

Oct 152002


  • Automatic transmission
  • 0 miles


Noxious odor inside and outside vehicle due to catalytic converter overworking. Acura insists this is normal and has advised us to continue driving car while causing my family to become nauseous and sick from the smell. They insist that hydrogen sulfide is environmentally safe but research indicates that this chemical causes damage to the respiratory system. Acura has refused to correct this problem and has advised us to pursue litigous means. I do not understand why my car smell is so potent while other MDX's do not smell.
