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.

2002 Acura RSX Owner Comments

The brake calipers on my 2002 Acura Rsx (base model) intermittently "seize" and cause the vehicle and steering column to vibrate while the car is in motion, making it difficult to control and apparently causing rotor damage. Since brake problems are a safety issue, the dealership's service department replaced both the calipers and rotors free of charge under the warranty. I was told by the service technician that the manufacturer is aware of the problem but does not know what is causing it. Since the equipment was replaced, the same problem has recurred.
