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 #1

I was approaching a traffic light in my Acura TL 2008 car. As I was pressing the brakes, my driver side air bags deployed. There was no cause that could have triggered the air bags to deploy; my car was not hit in the side, there was no debris on the road, there were no pot holes in the road. The air bags deployed for no reason. I have taken my car to the Acura dealership and upon inspecting it they decided that the airbags deployed because of a pot hole, which is not true.
