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.

problem #1

TSX 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles
Vehicle shut down in the middle of a 6-lane divided roadway. The check engine light was lit and the car would not restart. The dealership indicates that the computer or "PCM" failed. The part was backordered nationally. They tried removing a computer from another Tsx on the lot, but it failed due to compatibility issues. Apparently, this part is unique to each vehicle. After another week, the custom-built computer still has not arrived and I'm at the point where the car will have soon spent more time in the shop than in my driveway.
