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.

2009 Acura TSX Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 14,000 miles


I bought an Acura 2009 Tsx (tech pkg) in August 2008. Within the first month I had the brakes squealing, terrible noise. Took it to the dealer, who said it is normal with front brakes. I have suffered with the problem everyday for 1.5 years. When I went back to the dealer few days ago, they said there is excessive wear on the front pads. The car has 14,000 miles as of March 2010. They replaced the brakes per the new service bulletin related to squeaking brakes. Windshield molding came loose for no apparent reason, dealer fixed it as warranty service. There is excessive glare on the navigation system, makes it dangerous while driving. Not sure if there is a fix for this.

Noise coming from 2009 Acura tax rearend driverside. Piping noise can be heard when stopping and accelerating. There is a frame flaw. I am told Acura has a design flaw. They have to fuse two metal pieces to get the noise to quit and the dealer had to order a special tool from torance ca. What else is wrong with this horrible Honda product. Oh yeah and the engine pings a lot. What are we to do?
