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

Jul 292005

TL 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,000 miles


The accelerator pedal stuck. This started in November 2004. It was an intermittent problem. The consumer took vehicle to the dealer, they could not find the cause of the problem. While driving in July 2005 the accelerator pedal stuck and would not release. There was no accident. The consumer took vehicle to the dealership, and they contacted an engineer to examine the vehicle. The engineer found that a screw came out of the part that pertained to the cruise control and the accelerator connection.
