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.

2007 Acura TL Owner Comments

Well today I took my Acura TL type S for a carwash as usual and as I was parking on the shade I notice a small crack on the right hand side front passenger airbag on the dashboard and as I drove home and park in the garage the crack had gotten bigger and now I'm scared that the airbag might just pop out anytime. So I did some research in a popular website called acurazine where it's a community of Honda and Acura owners and im not the only one with this problem so maybe you guys could do a recall. Thank you for your time

Initially I observed a airline sized crack on passenger side of the dashboard right on airbag. Slowly it enlarged and now I see another crack around the same area. When I checked online, I found that it's not only me but several others have the same issue with Acura Tls. When I went tithe dealership they say the repair cost is about 2,000 usd.

The dashboard has cracked over the passenger side airbag. The crack is over 12 inches long right above the airbag. This crack will affect the airbag and needs to be fixed. There are thousands of Acura TL's with this same issue. I now recently noticed other cracks throughout the dashboard. Honda needs to take care of their customers if they want continuous business!

In the morning when I was in the car I noted a big crack in the dash, passenger side. Look like a air bag going to explode.

The dash board cracked on my 2007 Acura TL. The cracks are above the steering wheel and around the passenger airbag. Acura said they will not replace this because the car is out of warranty. This is obviously at no fault or abuse and it is clearly a defect that such a new car has this problem. I have read numerous posts online about this same problem and it should be classified as a manufacturer defect.

This is a generic complaint. A significant number of vehicles use red indicator dials against a dark background including, but not limited to, the vehicle type noted above. Approximately 10% of the male population is color deficient often making viewing the dial difficult if not impossible. Consideration should be given to requiring easily viewed colors by color impaired individuals, I.e. white or yellow against a dark background or black against white, etc. I've been meaning to suggest this for years but keep forgetting. Thanks.
