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.

2013 Acura TL Owner Comments

TL 6-cyl

Pronounced "clunk" noise coming from rear of car at low speeds - between 15-40 mph. This is a consistent issue that many people have reported in various Acura TL, tsx, and Honda Accord internet forums. Many people like myself have take the car back to the dealer multiple times to have the issue researched and they either say it is "normal" (as if it is a characteristic of the car) or there is no issue. Have claimed that everything in the rear suspension is "firm" or "solid", yet the issue still remains. I have never been in a car that had such a noise when driving over street cracks, speed bumps, etc. As I said, numerous people have reported this across the internet, yet no action that I can determine either from Acura or Honda. I am worried that there is a safety issue that is being ignored.
