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.

TSX

  • 71,000 miles
The A/C system (mainly the A/C compressor, clutch, and stator) in my 2005 Acura Tsx suddenly stopped working at 71,000 miles without any warning. I've researched this issue online and discovered that many 2004 and above model-year Acura Tsx vehicles have this problem. www.acurazine.com has many stories of owner dissatisfaction over the Acura Tsx A/C system. My car was diagnosed by a professional technician at aamco, and he informed me that "these cars" (Acura Tsx) are well-known to have faulty A/C systems and that there was a "dealer note" in his computer system suggesting that the car be taken to an Acura dealer. My car warranty has expired, and now I'm facing approximately $2000 in repairs because Acura has installed what is apparently known to be a faulty A/C system in their Tsx models. I don't see how it is reasonable for Acura Tsx owners to pay such high sums of money for Acura's faulty engineering/craftsmanship. I admire Acura vehicles and enjoy driving my Tsx, but I would like to request some research into this matter if possible so that more people don't have to fork over thousands of dollars to fix issues that can and should be prevented. Honda/Acura should be accountable to the high quality standards they are typically known for.
