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 contact owns a 2007 Acura TL. While driving 35 mph, the contact smelled a burnt odor coming from the vehicle. He inspected underneath the hood and discovered that most of the components were melted. The dealer informed the contact to wait a week until an engineer could properly inspect the vehicle. No repairs were made. The powertrain was unknown. The current and failure mileages were 2,500.
