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

A/C condenser on the Acura Rdx 2008 still under warranty did not work when the weather was warming up. Went to the dealer and he said all the freon escaped from a small hole on the condenser due to some debris hitting it. Dealer wants to charge me $900 do fix it!! the condenser has a design flaw. It is not protected with a grill and it will keep happening again. I'm not the only one. A lot of Honda and Acura vehicles owners are reporting condenser damage due to road debris!!!
