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.

2005 Acura RSX Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 87,584 miles


I have 2005 Rsx type S, and within past 2.5 years I had circuitry related to the airbags passenger and driver failed. At 64,000 miles passenger detection sensor in the seat failed and was replaced when SRS light came on, at 87,584 miles airbag control unit failed and airbag not functioning light came on. I would like to know if this is just my car happen to have bad airbag circuitry or it is an ongoing issue that Acura does not want to address. I checked multiple boards of Rsx owners like and see many of them have similar problems.
