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.

Acura MDX vent clips always break and it's common problem with all the MDX models irrespective of the year. I have a 2005 MDX and the air vent clip at 52K. Its not covered under extended warranty or certified warranty. I have to replace the entire center panel which costs around $250. I see lot of Acura owners complaining about this on webistes.

This is a most common complaint across the board for Acura MDX Acura is trying to rip customers by selling a bad product.

MDX 6-cyl

: the contact stated while driving 20mph the airbag light illuminated without warning and the engine stalled. The engine would not restart and the battery was discharged. Afterwards, the airbag and tire mounting light illuminated. The vehicle was seen by the dealer and the battery was replaced. The dealer determined the navigation unit was draining the battery. The engine stalling persisted and the vehicle lost all power. The engine was restarted but continued to stall. The vehicle was towed to the dealer who determined there was a short within the airbag SRS module wiring. Although the airbag problem was corrected, the stalling continued. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for further inspection, but the dealer was unable to duplicate the stalling problem.
