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.

Took vehicle vehicle to dealer for air bag light on. Was told 2 sensors were malfunctioning and needed replaced (81169-sox-A1 and 77970-S3V-A72) on 8-18-2016. Over a week later the dealer ( mac churchill) tells me the parts will not be available till the middle of September. Asked if the was a major issue with Acura I was told only on 2003 and 2004 models. I was told I could retrieve the vehicle until the parts come in after signing a liability release. If that is necessary, all 2003 and 2004 MDX Acura should be taken off the street for defective safety reasons.

I got an airbag recall notice in January 2015 for my Acura MDX. Now it's mid- may and the Acura dealership keeps say they do not have the part. This is a safety issue, Acura needs to do better than this. I sensed that Acura is dragging its feet!
