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.

2014 Acura RDX Owner Comments

problem #1

We have two 2014 Rdx's. wife hit a deer with damage to the right front light and right front quarter panel. Suppose to be a $3700 repair but when body shop drove Rdx into their building it caught fire and now we have a totaled 40,000 Rdx. Everybody has said they can't ever remember a Acura ever catching on fire. In talking with a Acura mechanic he mentioned something about they had some electrical issues on these vehicles but nothing was proven. We are waiting on the results from the electrical engineers that the insurance people have hired to try to determine if there is a problem with it's manufacturing or something else they are asking if any thing was leaking from the vehicle and as far as we know it wasn't leaking since we kept driving it until we took it to the body shop. My problem is I don't want to park the other Rdx in my garage not knowing if the vehicle has a manufacturing electrical problem. The mechanic told me to disconnect my battery cable if I was worried. I don't fine that as a solution to the problem. The other problem we have is the car was being driven and they pull it into their shop where they have worked on Honda's and Acura's for a lot of years and this model catches on fire. Something isn't right. My wife took some pictures on her phone of her Rdx.
