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.

2013 Acura MDX Owner Comments

I was driving approximately 20 mph when the engine completely shut down without warning. The car was still in drive, the ignition on, when it suddenly shut down and decelerated. I managed to make a right turn onto my street, although the power steering was not functioning. I put the car in park and restarted it with no problem. I did have a small wallet (dimensions were @ 4in by 5in, weight @ 3 oz) attached to the key while it was in the ignition. I contacted the Acura dealership the same day and was told by the technician that he was unaware of any problems with or recall on the ignition.
