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.

problem #2

Forward/front collision mitigation braking system didn't engage enough to reduce or avoid impact of the collision. My vehicle took a right turn at about 20-25 mph and travelled less than 2-2.5 car length before getting onto the curb and hitting an iron pillar about 2 feet high on side walk. It was a side frontal collision and the passenger side front wheel directly hit the iron pillar. The vehicle speed wasn't reduced to mitigate impact/damage from the collision and vehicle took full impact of the collision. The forward/front collision mitigation braking system must be evaluated to assess suitability to avoid collision with objects of low height.

The Acura lane keep assist system (lkas) mis-reads some intersections and jerks the wheel toward a side street only to quickly try to compensate by jerking back. There is one intersection in particular that this happens consistently. The deal says the system is working properly. I believe this is a software "defect". it is quite starting the first time this happens and at speed it represents an unsafe condition. Another case of a safety system creating an unsafe condition.
