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.

Engine mounts are broken. I have own more than 10 cars and I have never had the engine mounts fail. The car has 75000 miles. Acura should replace the engine mounts. It appears that I am not the only one with the same problem.

The other day I picked up my twins from daycare at rush hour after work, proceeded to get on the highway where suddenly my tsa & engine lights come on, my car goes limp and we were in a very near-miss accident situation. I try to keep my calm as my children are keenly aware that something is wrong. I look at the dash, I look at the cars coming from the back and side, and I slowly creep along and immediately put my hazards on. Now I have to get myself from the left lane and maneuver in to the right with people coming up that can't yet see my distress signal. Fortunately, it was in fact a near-miss, and I was able to pull out of the driving lanes, stop my car, turn it off, and call my husband for help. I found that this exact situation has happened to many customers. Surely, there must be a recall on this accelerator pedal position sensor (app sensor). I call my new home's nearest dealership (libertyville il ) to ask about any recalls on my VIN, and to additionally check about recalls on the app sensor. Nothing. This, however, has been repeatedly reported to you by many people over the years, and today I am reporting it again. Libertyville il certified Acura dealership confirmed it was a sensor failure. In fact, when I spoke with [xxx] at the libertyville il location, I expressed my sincere feelings about the situation and how I could not understand how this is not a recall item. In his attempt to make me feel better he said, look, this is such a rare thing. In my 15+ years in this business, you're only the 4th case I have personally had. instead of reassuring me, this infuriated me. One mechanic turned-service manager alone has had four of these death trap sensors" seriously, I have to ask, how many reported incidents does it take" information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

The bluetooth audio unit on my 2006 Acura TL has short circuited and is draining my battery causing the ignition system issues when starting the car in the morning. The short circuit had occurred due to the audio unit being placed above the rearview mirror console, this location is exposed to sunlight which in turn causes the components to heat up and damage the audio unit.
