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.

Had vehicle in Acura of wichita ks ignition switch recall and the also said they did recall on vsa ECU malfunction recall13V-092 id 589. Problem came back shortly after visit too dealership, called them and told them about warning lights still on. They said already done recall. Not a satisfied customer at all.iwonder if they even changed out wire harness or may of even installed used parts. I live 150 miles from the closest Acura dealer you would think they would of at least offered to check recall part?

When cruising 20-30 miles, the transmission would shutter or make loud grinding noises and vehicle would shake. Dealer couldn't duplicate noise and nothing was done until 2014. Transmission oil was changed and if problems comes back, they would change it. Problem came back and now makes trembling noise and feel it when reaching speed of 49 exactly and 1500rpm, during shifting gears and could get stuck. Dealer stated is normal sound. Now I have check engine light with code P0706, which is open in transmission range switch circuit probable cause. Searched and it seems that this year model, Acura MDX 2006, has had problems with transmissions and no recalls. Car makes noise while this is happening while on the highway. Sometimes the truck gets stuck doing this until I accelerate or bring down the speed on the highway. There are many complains with this issue, an Acura has not acknowledge the problem. I am afraid to have an accident on the highway or the vehicle gets stuck trying to change gears.
