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.

2008 Acura TSX Owner Comments

problem #1

Brakes have worn considerably over the last 10,000 miles. I purchased the vehicle 'certified pre-owned' in may, 2011. Now, only a year and 10K miles later...the car has begun to shake violently, affecting driver's ability to steer during heavy braking. The onset was incredibly fast...from barely noticeable to violently shaking the car in about 300 city miles at most. Looks like the pads will need to be replaced and the rotors smoothed, maybe replaced. Based on the estimates I have found, this repair will cost approximately $175 + labor if the rotors do need to be replaced. The unfortunate part about all of this...I didn't even have time to get my pads changed before they began to wear on my rotor. The stock Honda brakes appear to have worn out in the rear first, then the front. From what I can tell, the front brakes had to pick up the slack from the notoriously inadequate rear brakes, causing the fronts to wear considerably faster.
