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.

Defect investigation EA13002 has 1 related recall NHTSA campaign id number: 13V092000 my car was not experiencing any problems at the time of this recall but I did take it in to have the service completed in June 2013. A couple of months ago my car started acting exactly as described in the complaint. While driving anywhere from 45-50 mph, the brakes will engage on their own, jerking the car to the side and the vsa warning light as well as the sh-AWD drive light will come on in the car. This happens on a consistent basis, at least every 3 days, sometimes every day. Apparently the problem still exists because the recall fix has not prevented this from continuing to happen. I took my car in to the local Acura dealership for diagnosis and was told the yaw rate sensor is giving poor information to the ECU and stability control system and I am supposed to pay $1050 to have a new yaw rate sensor installed. I do not understand why I would be responsible for paying for this when it is a defect and can cause injury to me or other passengers on the road.
