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.

Fax fm consumer who's (or) disappointed in the way Acura handled the brakes and radio defects in their 2005 Acura Rl, ES have no records of prev. Correspondence. A part within the brake assembly was not made to fit properly and had to be retrofitted to stop the loud rattling and banging noise whenever the vehicle was driven over uneven pavement or rough surfaces. When the radio was turned on the screen displayed a code entry message and the radio would not work. Both problem were eventually repaired by the dealer.
