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

problem #1

Dec 052008


  • 14,000 miles


Purchased new 2007 Acura Rdx in July 2007 with Michelin Pilot tires. On 5/5/08 with less than 14,000 miles, experienced sidewall blowout on I-270 in Maryland while traveling under the speed limit (traffic). Purchased new tire at Acura. I was told it was caused by running over something in the road (which I don't recall doing). 8/22/08 noticed another tire was low on air. There was a small hole in the tread area so the tire was repaired at local shop. Again was told I ran over something. On November, experienced blowout with a large hole in the sidewall while traveling at highway speed on I-70 in Maryland. Brought car to Acura again and was told I was just unlucky and again, ran over "something" in the road. At this point, I had now replaced two tires and had a third repaired. On December 5, I drove to Pennsylvania. The car sat parked all day. At night, when I went out, the remaining two original tires were both flat. I had to stay overnight and wait until morning. I found a local tires plus an purchased four new Bridgestone tires as I did not feel the michelins were safe. In 17 months, with 22,000 miles on the vehicle, I have purchased 6 tires and spent over $1400. I drive mostly highway on well maintained and heavily traveled roads. I don't speed or drive recklessly. The vehicle is kept in my garage overnight and had been serviced regularly at Acura. In over 30 years of driving, I have only had one other flat tire. I have had 4 in 7 months. All 4 of the original Michelin tires gave out. I am fortunate that I was not injured but I am convinced the tires are defective and dangerous.
