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.

This is in reference to a 2009 Acura Tsx w/technology package. I understand that the radio system wouldn't normally be considered as part of a safety issue, but the loudness and severity of noise during the event could startle someone to erratic steering momentarily. I was driving down the interstate last Saturday, 05 June 2010, when a call came in to my phone (hands-free link) the radion began to mute and then the radio began screeching at very high volume. I could not turn it off by pressing the on/off button on the radio and I could not decrease the volume. I had to pull over immediately and turn the motor off. Once off, I restarted the car and tried to initiate a hands-free call and the same thing happened again. And again, I had to turn the car off to stop the noise. I can't imagine what sort of damage this might have done to the speakers or radio/amplifier. I called the dealer today and the service advisor said he had heard nothing about such a problem, but would check into data bases and get back with me. Has anyone else experienced a problem like this?
