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.

2015 Acura MDX Owner Comments

We have sporadic problems with engine or transmission and the dealer has not been able to identify the problem. It happens at any time slow or fast speed: Uphill or downhill the car will not change gears and starts to pull as if the transmission is going to fall out. We have reported this to Acura customer service and results were guarded. I am afraid for my and my family's safety because the problem continues and it happens anytime and anywhere. It happened today and we called the dealer to come and pick up the car.

The contact owns a 2015 Acura MDX. The contact stated that the keyless entry system failed. The contact was unable to unlock the doors if the cell phone and keyless fob were in the same location. The vehicle was taken to the dealer several times. The technician explained that some cell phones might interfere with the keyless system. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and stated that this was a known problem with the keyless system. However, they were not able to determine what the proper remedy would be for the failure. The failure mileage was 5,000. Updated 11/09/15 the consumer stated the front doors would not open.
