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

problem #1

Jun 012009


  • 73,000 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Acura TL. While driving approximately 55 mph on normal road conditions, the brake pedal extended to the floor when it was depressed. Several attempts were made before the vehicle finally came to a complete stop. The stopping distance was increased. The failure occurred spontaneously. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic for inspection and the contact was informed that the master cylinder was the cause of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The vehicle is in the process of being taken to an authorized dealer for repair. The VIN was unable to be entered into the system. The failure and current mileages were 73,000.
