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.

2007 Acura RDX Owner Comments

RDX 4-cyl

I purchased the vehicle on 11/23/06 and on 1/27/07, the P1009 check engine emission failure code came up on my navigation screen just as my car suddenly lost its ability to accelerate or maintain its current speed. My speed was reduce immediately from 60 mph to 20 mph and the RPM dropped from 3 to below 1. the car became sluggish and acted as though it was stalling. The car was immediately sent in for repair and I was told the solenoid was not installed correctly which cause the vehicle timing to be incorrect. Today is 2/28/07 and the car was towed away because the same error occurred along with a new error. The vsa failure alert appeared on my navigation screen followed by the P1009 check vehicle emission error. It has been 1 month to the tee and the same symptoms reappeared. The car lost its ability to accelerate and the engine stalled suddenly.
