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

I own a new Acura TL which has bridgstone turanza el 42 235/45-17 tires as oem. From the beginning it became clear the tires are dangerous. They hydroplane on wet surfaces, skid easily on residual road sand. The right front and rear sidewalls failed--one with an egg shaped bubble and the other with a deep cut--despite no evidence that I struck a curb or pothole etc. Both tires were likely to blow out with continued driving. Surveys by tire rack indicate these tires are also very dangerous in the winter, which is about to happen here in the northeast where I live. These tires also "coldspot" after being parked for a while, sometime causing the car to steer poorly. The dealer could only replace the bad tires on a "road hazard" warranty, despite my many complaints to both Acura and the parent company Honda usa.
