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.

2011 Acura MDX Owner Comments

I was stopped at a stop light when a pick up truck hit my car from behind. I was wearing my seatbelt and my seat was positioned at an appropriate distance from the steering wheel. After my head first hit the headrest from the initial impact, my head flew forward and hit the steering wheel. I had a bump on my forehead and a headache afterward (followed by a black eye the next day). Fortunately, a cat scan confirmed that my injury was not serious. Because I was concerned about whether my seatbelt was working or not, I took my Acura to my local Acura dealer to have the seatbelts checked. They told me that my seatbelts were working as they should. I am still concerned, however, about my seatbelt's reliability in a collision. I can't say whether or not my seatbelt locked at some point during my accident because it happened so quickly and unexpectedly that I, frankly, don't remember. But I do know that it didn't keep me from hitting my steering wheel.
