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.

I financed a car from a dealer in 3-2016 car was not able to start so the dealer informed me what was the problem and it was that I was using the wrong key. Dealer also said that I can take the car to a mechanic to see if there are any issues with the car took it to pep boys and over 20 issues showed from lack of oil to control arm shaking I had road safety issues and I informed the dealer and he told me to take it to his mechanic and he will give me a discount that's when I started looking at the dealer with suspension I did a car fax and the dealer had an inspection sticker on the car from March the day if financed the car but on car fax it shown that they inspected the car in December of 2015 2 weeks later the air bag sensor shows I called the dealer and he told me not to call no more or he will call the police. I sent him a letter to fix the problems and he just ignored me.. so now im at my last steps... I only had the car for 2 months and all of these safety issues are showing what can I do now......

The contact owns a 2005 Acura MDX. The contact stated that driving 55 mph, the vehicle would veer to the right and then the brake would engage independently. In addition, the vehicle stability assist (vsa) warning indicator illuminated. The vehicle was previously repaired under a recall associated with NHTSA campaign id number 13V092000 (service brakes, hydraulic, traction control system). The same day the recall remedy was performed, the failure recurred. The vehicle was towed to an authorized dealer for the most recent defect. The technician stated the failure was contributed to the yaw sensor. The vehicle was in the process of being repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 184,000. The VIN was not available.
