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.

2010 Acura TL Owner Comments

problem #3

Aug 152014

TL 6-cyl

  • 36,000 miles


In January 2014 I purchased an Acura certified 2010 TL base with Bridgestone turanza tires on it. The quality of Bridgestone tires were unacceptable. These tires had no grip on wet road and road covered with light snow. One day, all of a sudden, one of the tires lost pressure to 0 psi. When I took it to nearest Firestone, I was told the tire was repaired too many times by previous owner and could not be repaired. In fact there were three repairs within one inch - which is illegal in Illinois per Firestone. Acura purchased this vehicle from previous owner but failed to inspect the tires properly during certification process. When I contacted Acura, someone left a voice mail, but when I called back and left a voice mail to call me back, no one got back to me. Due to safety concerns, I had to replace all four tires within a few months of purchasing the vehicle. Acura should not use Bridgestone tires in its vehicles. Also, Firestone/Bridgestone should recall these tires and refund money for the replacement cost of my tires. Will appreciate if you please look into this issue. Please note that we own two Acura vehicles - a 2009 MDX and a 2010 TL and both came with Bridgestone tires and both had tire related problems. However, Acura or Bridgestone will not take any responsibilities.
