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.

2007 Acura MDX Owner Comments

Open tailgate creates electrical drain that kills the battery in a few hours with no lights turned on or any other obvious signs of battery drainage indication. The issue seems to apply only to vehicles equipped with power tailgate. Multiple complaints found on the internet reported by other vehicle owners. This is a major safety issue since people may not be able to start engine on their vehicle just after having tailgate open for a relatively short time. Acura customer relations department was contacted over the phone but refused to admit the fact of electrical design or a component issue and suggested me to have the vehicle diagnostic done at my own expense in the nearest dealership.
