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.

2004 Acura MDX Owner Comments

problem #3

I own a 2004 Acura MDX and 3 out of the 4 air vents (clips) in the front area of the car are broken. They are very cheaply made and fall into pieces when you try to adjust the flow of air. I did some research and found out there is a lot of other people also out there with this problem. Many forums, such as edmunds, has many people complaining about the same thing. They either need to be recalled or Acura needs to start selling replacement clips instead of the entire air vent.
