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.

Acura Rdx tech vehicle violently upshifts while accelerating from a stop. It started intermittently (twice before but not as violent).on inclines (live in southern California). Yesterday, while going up an incline to park vehicle, car violently shifted and hit a building resulting in crashing into a building, deployment of airbag and soft tissue injury of driver's chest. Vehicle is with ball Acura and is being investigated. Car is only 1 month old and was purchased brand new (80 miles). Acurazine community forum has another incident that is 100% similar to what occurred with my vehicle. User name is dirvin.
