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.

My wife was driving the vehicle on a state road. While making a left turn from the left lane the key blade separated from the key fob and fell to the floor. The key fob has a engine immobilizer and when it fell the engine shut off. With no power steering or brakes the vehicle would not turn properly which caused it to go straight into another vehicle in the right turn lane. I feel this is a safety defect of the key design. The key blade pops open from the fob and gets loose as time goes by. The manufacturer's position is this in not a defect but normal wear. A $50,000 vehicle less than six years old should not have this problem. Especially when it can break anytime and cause a accident like my wife had.

The vehicle was stranded on three separate occasions and would not start. The battery still worked. The dealership, hendrick's Acura in charlotte, nc, replaced a fuse twice and removed the automatic starter and replaced a wire. Today, the car would not start again. It has less than 35000 miles on it. A vehicle that cannot start and gets stranded multiple times create a safety hazard. Moreover the dealership was not sure what was causing the problem, but charged us to try to figure it out.
