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 dashboard on the passenger is cracked. I bought the car brand new. The cracked dashboard my present safety issues if the passenger air bag was to inflate. Now that the dashboard has cracked, the crack will continue to grow, and possibly jeopardize the integrity of airbag, amongst other unknowns dashboards should not be cracking, and they should be engineered to withstand heat. I believe this is a defective dashboard.

I noticed a crack in my dashboard on the passenger side around the air-bag housing after returning from work. Dealer stated it is merely cosmetic and would cost $1500 to replace. The crack has continued to run further on both sides of air-bag. Also, car has been towed several times because of failure to start after parked overnight. Had battery replaced twice. Finally took it to dealership and was told hands-free module needed to be replaced or removed. Removal cost me $200. Replacement would have cost $800. Also, my fuel cap indicator has been coming on for quite some time when the fuel falls below halfway. I have owned this car for 9 years. I keep the vehicle in good condition. Now with the dashboard cracking its value has decreased immensely not to mention could cause the air-bag to deploy without incident. If that were to happen and cause an accident Honda/Acura would have much bigger issues to contend with. I have contacted Acura corporate and they didn't seem concerned by the issue. Dealership was equally unconcerned. These are issues that require recalls before something tragic happens.

The dash has begun to deteriorate/crack around the airbag housing on the passenger side. Cracks began forming while car was stationary and garaged. Any attempt to fix the growing crack will interfere with proper airbag deployment. This appears to be a common issue with this car - please advise.

Dash board crack over passenger side airbags. Many cracks have formed and I am not sure if it has affected the airbag system.

Started with a hairline crack in the dashboard at the passenger airbag and now have significant cracks all around the passenger airbag. Cracks are now beginning above the center speaker in the center of the dashboard.
