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.

Power driver's seat shifts during hard breaking/acceleration. Seat shifts forward and back less than an inch. This can be troublesome when accelerating and it causes my foot to slip off of the clutch and jump suddenly. Could cause me to involuntarily slam into the car in front of me. I have had multiple dealers look at this and they have all told me it is because of the way the seat was designed and they are unable to fix it. A moving seat does not feel safe.

When braking, the driver's seat slides forward (about 1/4 of an inch). This has been a constant problem since the vehicle was new. The dealer has looked at the problem and stated that it is within normal specifications.

Acura Tsx 2004 driver seat slides back to front during heavy breaking or down shifting. Seat shift is about 1-2 inches and has a spring like effect. Also driver seat shifts slightly side to side during turns. Dealer states movement is normal factory specifications. To my knowledge from reading online forums, there are hundreds if not thousands of Tsx cars that have this problem. No tsb created to this date. Car is being taken in for fourth time to attempt to address problem. I sense that in the right situation, this seat shift problem may cause foot to slip off brake and cause an accident.

Driver's seat shifts forward upon breaking, and left to right when turning at any speed. This problem was in conjunction with a broken plastic panel in the seat base, which was subsequently fixed on the third repair. Seat shift was finally fixed after the third repair. Now, 4 weeks later, the problem is back. Plastic panel first broke with seat shift, one week after purchase, 10/06/03. It was in repair four times, with the entire seat having been swapped out with that of a loaner car. At six months, I have approx. 2800 miles, and the seat shift is getting gradually worse again.
