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

Aug 202007

TL 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 50,000 miles


I started my car, backed out of my driveway, started to go down the road and smelled a strong whiff of gasoline. So I backed up and pulled back in my driveway to find gas pouring down the front of my gas tank, all over the exhaust system. In a few seconds of having the car running I had a 5 foot pool of gas under the car. If my wife had taken the car, she wouldn't have noticed and kept going. This could have been really bad. The car is a 2004 Acura TL with about 50,000 miles on it, but I have the extended warranty. The car is currently at the dealer and they just called me and said that they found a fuel line has split and they ordered the part. They have not yet figured out what may have caused the fuel line to split. My wife can not smell and also is a smoker, so luckily I happened to take the car when this happened.
