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.

CarComplaints.com 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.

My Acura went in for the air-bag recall, and the service technician notice the rear beam of the front sub-frame was rotted (had a hole in it). He said it would cost me around $2480. To replace it. I did some research and found that Honda motor had put it ac drainpipe to directs water on it causing it to rust. Honda motor need to step-up to the plate and have a recall on this part. I also has a complaint on my 2002 Honda Accord. Honda new about this problem for some time, the ac drainpipe dripped water on the 1999 - 2002 model.
