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.

My 2008 Acura TL continues to display a "tighten fuel cap" warning light. I've replaced the fuel cap, but it continues to display this light. It is very annoying, and I've been reading other complaints online. My car is not the only one with this problem. I also had to replace my front motor mount and transmission.

Transmission shifting gear gets stuck in neutral and it takes many attempts to shift gear when it happens. It is occurring more frequently lately almost on a daily basis. Gear gets stuck so bad it is close to impossible to move it into drive or parking position. I've had other vehicles in the past, older than this one, yet never experienced anything like this with either one of them. This is dangerous because the car can stall in traffic and can get hit by another vehicle while I'm trying to shift into gear.
