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.

2006 Acura RSX Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 012006

RSX 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 50 miles


Purchased car on July 31, 2006 and drove car directly home. Overnight, parking brake failed and car crashed into tree & boat trailer damaging rear bumper and rear left panel (driver's side). Subsequent follow-up revealed that brake would not hold as it should - video and other evidence including statement from auto repair professional supports claim. Auto dealer (apple Acura) and Acura client services refused to honor warranty. Auto did not meet Pennsylvania inspection standards when sold. While auto was at dealer, and without authorization from us, brakes were adjusted/corrected prior to delivering vehicle back to us. Auto was taken to an independent auto body shop for repair.
