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.

Problem was noticed about a week ago. The hood latch is bolted to a piece of metal, and there is a broken place in the metal. The metal piece broke away from the body on the right side, and then on the left side of the hood, the metal shows fatigue, and is almost broken, and is ready to break away soon. Metal fatigue is evident on both sides. Consumer contacted the dealer, and the car will be taken to dealer today. The case number with Acura is 120050617300086.
