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 vibration (judder) at 20-45 mph during acceleration. This issue should put in the recall menu.

While driving my car surged forward on its on then I lost rpms. My car then cut off on a busy interstate during rush hour. I took to the dealership they said I needed a new transmission. Ironically I had work done on my converter that the dealership recalled and now it has failed and almost had me killed.

Random nav reset followed by non-acceleration until rpms reach over 3000. This has happened multiple times since purchasing this vehicle in July 2012. Navigation/radio system resets. Soon followed by problem of non-acceleration. Ex: following reset, stop at traffic light, stop sign, etc. Light turns green. Car feels as though it is stuck in 1st gear. Will not accelerate over 1000 rpms. Extremely slow movement thru intersection then car slams into gear and rpms top 3000. After rough shift car performance is mostly normal, sometimes hard shifting. Next red light repeat performance. If put into park and then back to drive transmission seems to "reset" and may or may not repeat above action. If car is turned off and left to sit for a short time it usually does not repeat but for how long is anyone's guess. Lately nav reset happens so often I lose count, I just wait for the car to shift into what feels like first gear. Dealership has not been able to recreate this issue. No computer codes show up in system. Multiple complaints to dealer but they claim to have no record and to have never heard of this problem.

My father was just in an accident today. MDX was street parked and when he tried to reverse out the car suddenly accelerated and crashed in to the car behind him and pushed it back about 20 feet.
