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.

The contact owns a 2005 Acura TL. The contact stated that while traveling 55 mph, the vehicle suddenly stalled without warning. The contact was able to merge to the side of the road and restarted the vehicle. The vehicle was able to be driven to the contact's destination and was later taken to a private mechanic, where it was confirmed that the fuel pump failed. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was contacted about the issue and informed the contact that the vehicle was not included in NHTSA campaign id number 07V097000 (fuel system, gasoline:delivery:fuel pump). The failure mileage was 190,000 and the current mileage was 200,000.

  • 105,051 miles
Driving on highway and gas pedal failed to operate proper....after slowing down to about 20 mph it started up again and I regained the speed of about 60. Then in about 2 miles it happened again, I got off the highway and took to the closest Acura dealer. They replaced the app sensor and noted "pedal position sensor failure" the pedal position sensor was replaced. This happened on June 5, 2012, then on September 3, 2012 I was parking in our office parking lot and the gas petal accelerated as I was putting the gear shift in the park position. I accelerated so fast I hit the concrete stop took off airborne went over the embankment and down to the street below. Needless to say the car entire front end was wrecked. The seat belt did indeed save me from more serious injury than I did received.
