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.

While driving at night, on numerous occasions the right headlight would flicker intermittently and then go out completely. You have to turn headlight switch off and then back on for the headlight to come back on. I have concerns for me and my family's safety.

While driving at night headlights do not illuminate the road far enough ahead, creating dangerous driving cituations, Acura dealership(3 times) and Acura help center tell me this is a "characteristic" of this model. This is not acceptible, as the vehicle is a hazard to drive at night. Please help as I believe Acura is ignoring a engineering mistake and calling it a charactristic!
