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.

2006 Acura TSX Owner Comments

problem #2

Power steering has been affected due to defective rack and pinion. Car pulls to the right and poses a safety issue on highway. Steering has also locked up due to the power steering leak while driving. A very frightening situation when going faxt speeds. Also, the front passenger airbag started cracking a few years ago and am questioning weather it would deploy in a collision.

My wife lost control of our 2006 Acura Tsx and hit a concrete barrier head first at approximately 50mph. The airbags did not deploy. Both frame rails were bent and everything at the front of the car was pushed back towards the engine. The fenders were bent, the bumper was destroyed, the doors didn't open and close properly. My insurance declared the car a total loss B/C of the severe damage. Despite the severe accident, the airbags failed to deploy. My attempts to contact Acura and get a response from them regarding the matter has been unsuccessful. They just said "the car determined they weren't necessary" and blew me off. Their response is not appropriate to me, especially since my wife sustained neck and back injuries as a result of the crash. I want to find out what happened, and make sure other vehicles out there are safe B/C this could happen to anyone. Safety features should be functional.
