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 handsfree link (bluetooth) module failed. I've read that this is a common occurrence from the website I belong to (a website for Acura owners/enthusiasts). I consider it a safety issue since it allows you to use your cellphone while driving without having to use your handset. The car's stereo speaker system and a built-in microphone allows you to conduct a phone call. I have read it is a poor design choice on Acura's part placing the bluetooth module in the car ceiling near the roof. Sitting in the sun, the module "fries" and eventually fails. Acura refuses to do anything about it stating that it is out of warranty. They want to charge $110 just to diagnose it and over $700 to install a new device. I hope Acura owners complain and write letters to Acura about this issue. I feel a safety recall should be issued and perhaps even relocating the module out of the heat from the sun.

Battery failure after 18 months/17,000 miles. Was advised by service dept. Representative that car's bluetooth feature acts as a "vampire" drain on the battery even when the engine is off. Said it's a known problem with 2005 and 2006 models.

problem #1

  • 18,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Acura TL. When the contact attempted to start the vehicle, it would not crank up. The vehicle operated normally after the contact had the battery jumped. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the contact stated that there was nothing wrong. The failure occurred again that day and the contact had the vehicle jumped again. The failure was intermittent and became progressively worse. The battery was replaced but failed again. The vehicle had not been repaired. The VIN was unavailable. The failure mileage was approximately 18,000 and the current mileage was approximately 40,000.
