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.

2006 Acura TL Owner Comments

At around 8,000 miles, I hit a curb hard enough to bend the wheel of my 2006 Acura. The dealership replaced the wheel and sent me on my way. 3 months and 3,000 miles later, the wheel came off the axel. Fortunately I was going around 5 miles per hour headed to a stop sign when it happened, otherwise, it could have been a fatal incident. The bolt that caused the problem was completely severed. There are marks across it that show the wear on the bolt over the 3,000 miles. The dealer indicated that hitting the curb has caused the bolt to be damaged and that they had seen it in one other Acura that had a similar situation. I have a serious concern that either there is a design problem or the metal used to make the bolt is substandard. Had I been on the interstate, the result would have been very different.
