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.

Engine check light is on for the 3rd time. Acura of memphis, tn has serviced the vehicle for this complaint. Lujacks auto plaxa in davenport, ia has serviced this vehicle for this complaint. I have been told by Acura dealers service dept that it is ok for me to drive the vehicle because the problem with the engine check light being on is due to clogged emission sensors. I am quite afraid to drive the vehicle with the check engine indicator light in. I am currently scheduled to take the vehicle in for the 3rd service for this complaint to Acura of lisle, Illinois what are my options should this engine light come on for the 4th time. I certainly am not able to sell this vehicle at this time with the check engine light on and nee to know what my options are?.
