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.

I have a 2008 Acura TL type-S. there is a safety recall for the power steering hose for this model, however the VIN of my car is not covered. I am experiencing the issue with the power steering hose leaking (verified by an Acura dealership). I called Acura and they said that even though I am experiencing the same issue as cars that are covered under the recall, my car is not covered. I know from reading reports from other TL owners who have had the same issue, the hose on my car does not have the hose with the heat-shield that is installed when the recall work is performed, thus my car has the defective hose and should be covered.

The contact owns a 2008 Acura TL. The contact stated while driving 30 mph, the vehicle stalled without warning. The vehicle independently restarted within seconds. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where a diagnostic was performed but the test did not generate any failure codes. The manufacturer was contacted and advised that there were no recalls on the vehicle. The contact stated the main concern was if the vehicle stalled while driving at highway speeds and potentially causing a crash. The failure mileage was 65,000.
