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 have had my Acura 1998 since 2002 (27,000 - 185,000 miles). Alway dealer serviced.

The air condition has been replace four times. Lucky me I just had to pay for it once.

You think service would fine cause to save them expense of ongoing replacements.

The Brakes only last 20, 000 miles and must be replaced. Still looking for a better car and have not found one. Normal other maintenance items - Transmission replaced at 30,000 miles warranty.
