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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: 2015 Acura TLX owners just want a transmission that can get from 1st to 5th gear without feeling like a washing machine full of bricks. A class-action lawsuit wants answers for why the car’s transmission jerks and hesitates just months after the transmissions were recalled and replaced for not being able to shift into park.

I just turned on to the highway, and there was not a car around me. I started to accelerate and then there was a huge sound, almost like a gun shot. I immediately pulled over and noticed that my sunroof was complete shattered with a gaping hole in the middle of it. I was completely dumbfounded because I wasn't underneath a bridge or anything other than the clear blue sky. There were no cars around me to say an object hit it either. Just completely shattered for no reason. The best part is that Acura refuses to replace the sunroof when this is clearly a manufacturer default. They claim that there is no way for them to verify that it wasn't caused by an object hitting it. I'm hoping more people report this issue so the sunroof can be recalled because not only is this complete bs. It is very dangerous. If the sunroof shade wasn't closed, I would have had class shards all over the car and myself that could have landed in my eye and caused injury or even worse and accident.

Sunroof glass shattered while driving down the road. There were no cars in front of me and I was only going 25 mph as I had just begun to accelerate. This could not have been a rock but a defect in the car. If the visor wasn't closed glass could have fell into the car and possibly cut someone. Acura needs to address this as this is not an object hitting the vehicle.

The side view mirrors have an odd reflection from the chrome components on the side or interior of the car. I have a brand new 2015 Acura Tlx AWD.

I've purchased a 2015 Acura Tlx approximately 1 week ago and the chrome outline on the air vents has an extreme glare when looking at the side mirrors. On Dec 5th 2014, I notified the service technician but he said that's the first he's heard of it and dismissed the complaint as faulty. This appears to be a design flaw and safety concern and needs to be remedied as the mirror should be showing me what is outside the car, not what is inside the car.
