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.

2008 Acura TL Owner Comments

problem #2

TL 6-cyl

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Our 2008 Acura TL and almost every Acura TL I see has a problem or is developing a problem with the seals of the headlights. The vehicle is equipped with hid headlights. The problem starts with a small discoloration or fog on the inside of the headlight lens cover, and expands with time. The discoloration or fog lessens the intensity of the headlights, cutting back on visibility and illumination. The dealer said the fog in the headlight problem is local to Arizona only. Really? I would like ntsb or responsible Agency to determine if this is a factory defect and if a recall should be ordered to replace the headlight housing. As I mentioned, I see this problem on most Acura Tls that I see on the street.
