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.

2016 Acura TLX Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 2,400 miles


The contact owns a 2016 Acura Tlx. While pulling into a parking spot with the brake pedal depressed, the vehicle accelerated and lunged forward without warning. Due to the failure, the contact's vehicle drove over a concrete curb barrier and was stopped by bushes. The crash did not cause the air bags to deploy. A police report was filed. The contact sustained a lower back sprain injury on the left side. Medical attention was received. The vehicle was towed to the dealer, but they could not duplicate the failure. The front bumper, bumper cover, lower grill, grill step, headlamps, and passenger alloy were repaired. The failure mileage was approximately 2,400.

Acceleration from low gears rev RPM up to 6000 when moving out of a parking spot. When going onto highway same thing anything lower than 20 mph has a hesitation. Not sure what my options are.
