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.

2008 Acura RDX Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 112009

The front brakes on my 2008 Acura Rdx make a loud grinding noise when applied on a slight downgrade or when stopping slightly harder than normal. I experienced w/ original brakes, repeated visits to dealer heard & found nothing. At time of brake replacement, brakes were fine, noise started again about 15K miles into the new brakes. Took to dealer on sat they again find nothing report pads/rotors normal. The dealership now states that Acura is aware and has no fix for the problem. The brakes feel like they are grabbing onto the rotor. Feel mushy, rubbing and slow to stop. The sound is similar to metal to metal grinding. Had a loaner and brakes were 1000% more stable.
