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

Sep 192006

TL 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 21,500 miles


Severe corrosion and grooving on rear brakes not caused by environmental conditions or normal wear (front brakes ok). Could lead to accident due to diminished braking capacity. Almost identical pattern on left and right rear rotors. Found during ~ 21K dealer service but was there to lesser extent at about 12-15K miles. Rotors and pads replaced to correct the problem. I have learned from other 2005 and newer TL's they have had a similar problem at a similar mileage. Digital photos and references to other owners can be provided.
