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.

2008 Acura MDX Owner Comments

Auto damper system on 2008 MDX stops working due to sensor problems in shocks/ struts. Auto damper system adjusts shock sensitivity to road conditions and has two modes, comfort and sport. When the system malfunctions the shocks/struts default to a given sensitivity. The danger occurs if the driver believes that he/she is in sport mode and the system malfunctions while driving it could cause a wrong interpretation of the road and potentially hamper the safety of the driver/passengers. My MDX has had regular failures in the sensors, I have conversed with several other MDX owners and this is a problem that occurs on a regular basis.
