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.

2004 Acura TL Owner Comments

The brakes on my 2004 Acura TL have continued to be spongy and air gets into the system. I have spent over $1000 trying to fix the brakes and they keep getting spongy within a day of being bled. My mechanic did a seach and found the following tsb. this is a safety issue! Honda is recalling Odyssey vehicles for the same issue. It is a known issue in 2004 through 2006 Acura TL's and no action is being taken. I called Acura and they said that they have no current plans for a recall.
