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.

2005 Acura TL Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 132007

TL 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


Hit a curb going 20-30 mph (not full-on, though). Blew tire and cause slight alignment issue, as expected. However, next day noticed three large dents next to my sunroof. Took it to dealer and discovered the roof flexed when I hit the curb and the entire roof panel has to be replaced. For hitting a curb" what would have happened to me if I had actually hit something more substantial" no way should a consumer incur a $5000+ repair bill for clipping a curb or hitting a pothole. Found other Acura owners complaining on blogs about the same thing. Costly for a minor accident.
