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.

I purchased my Acura recently and it has since developed a loud crack (as someone else described it on this forum) when the transmission shifts from 1st gear to 2nd gear. Has anyone else had a similar experience and what was the fix? The car has 135,000 miles and otherwise seems to be in excellent condition for the year and the miles. Does not use oil and I do not see any leaks. I have not had time to inspect the front end.
