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

problem #2

Jul 132016

TSX Navigation 2.4L I4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


The car began shifting rough, especially if you had slowed down and in try to return to speed. and did this for about a week or so and had four transmission for everything seemed fine. Then one day it would not accelerate above maybe 20 miles an hour. I nursed the car home had it towed to the repair shop where I was informed needed a new transmission. They tried to replace or repair the transmission four times each time the repair failed in the car was out of service for a week or two. Finally been replaced it.
