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.

Parasitic battery drain from hands free link unit causing battery to go dead. Googled the issue and saw many complaints regarding this issue. I was on a road trip from California to Minnesota and had stopped at a vacant parking lot to take a nap. I turned off the lights, turned the vehicle off and removed the key, 4 hours later my battery was dead. I ended up buying a new battery and a few months later I flew out to California again for 3 days, when I returned my car was dead again.

I had two events. One while driving at 20 mph in my neighborhood and straight line driving and car suddenly accelerated. I threw car in neutral and stepped on gas hard for a second and cancelation stopped. Then five minutes later, while making a left turn, same exact event took place. I did the same thing. I had the brakes on hard and no stopping car. First time car has done this and I am only driver for six years. Brought to Acura and they sent a corporate mechanic to check and said they found nothing. Just got car back. A little scary.

RDX

  • 45,000 miles
We have a pre-owned certified 2007 Acura Rdx, and noticed that from time to time the ignition does not release the key when the car is put in park. We took the car in to the dealership and they informed us that there is a service bulletin for that type of problem.. water leaks from the roof of the car into the cabin, which disables the ignition switch and prevents the key to be removed from the car.
