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.

The Acura MDX 2015 can be turned off while in drive and the car rolls backwards as if in the neutral position. Pull into a parking space and forget to put the car in park, but push the engine start button to turn off the car. The car will roll backwards. The car does not lock into place. This is a serious safety concern if a person was behind the car they would get run over. The Acura corporate office took the information and told me to call the dealer. The dealer said that this is a known feature of the new car.
