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.

2003 Acura RSX Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 092004

RSX 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Brakes make grinding noise and power steering fluid goes down, I have had the brakes replaced about 4 times in the front, the rear brakes have been replaced one, within a month after purchasing my Acura Rsx I began to hear the brake noises, had them fixed with Acura, but the noised came back so I had them done with sears twice and once again at Acura and as of today they are making grinding noise, I think the rotors need changing. Also I have about 31,000 miles and my power steering keeps going way below the lower level and the power steering beings to make a loud screeching noise as well, I have taken it to get the power steering checked, and they say its fine.
