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.

2004 Acura TSX Owner Comments

Acura 2004 Tsx owner. Just recently discovered this site; but as with the other complaints, I have also experience the vehicle to vibrate/shimmy while applying the brakes. I have taken this to the dealer, 1st when I had 12,000 miles, and being a naive 1st time car owner, I had to pay to replace the brakes (apprx. $300) for a brand new car! I then experienced this at approx. 25,000 miles, and again had to pay $300 for a new set of brakes. This is an issue with Acura - and as stated by others on this database, it may be possible that this could lead to possible injury due to brake malfunction.

TSX

When applying brakes, they travel lower and feel softer than normal and are not responsive. Brakes will lose traction, causing the car to roll when stopped. At a national brake repair service provider, I was told that they could flush the brake system (which temporarily improved the issue for about a week), but air was getting into the brake system due to a faulty vsa modulator. Acura does not allow sell these parts outside of their own service providers and has not issued a recall for this potentially dangerous issue with this vehicle. I am submitting this complaint in hopes that this could prevent any future accidents.

The contact owns a 2004 Acura Tsx. While driving 50 mph the vehicle drove to the left lane when the brake pedal was depressed. The road conditions were clear. The dealer was unable to diagnose the failure. The failure and current mileage were 50,000.
