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. Notes: The 1999-2003 Acura TL has a known & widespread defect with the transmission.

Honda fixed some vehicles with a recall in 2004 by changing the oil cooler return line. To settle a class action lawsuit in 2006, Honda extended the transmission warranty on some of these Acura TL's to 93 months / 109,000 miles.

Now these vehicles are past the warranty limit, so buyer beware.

  • Automatic transmission

FLUSH!!!!!!!!!!!! that's the sound of the value of my car going down the toilet when it only has 58 k miles on it and now a branded title because the odometer quit. odometer stopped registering miles at exactly 58k. Had the Dealer repair it for $900 and that shows on the Carfax report and I am now forced to mark NOT ACTUAL MILES on the Bill of Sale when I sell the car.
