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.

I made an appointment to fix the recall and showed up to the dealership in August and they said that they would reschedule my appointment when the part became available. I have not heard from them and I called to ask and they said that it is still not available.

Bought car new May 2008, manual 6 speed. Have had many repairs:brakes X4, antenna, driver's seat molding, air bags, roof molding, front window molding. I still love driving car despite the car gulping quarts of oil and no source of oil loss has been determined. Began having difficulty shifting gears 09/2013. Took to troy Acura told clutch ok. Clutch failed completely about 3 weeks later on I-75, could not get out of 2nd gear. Replaced with Acura parts $1761 repair costs on 10/30/2013. Around June 2014, clutch would either depress rapidly or was very hard to depress at times. I attributed this to variable weather ( very hot alternating with damp rainy) since clutch not year old. Developed loud, rattling vibration in steering during acceleration on lane changes 10/2013. Told that both drive shafts bad and had seized into hub. Surprised since I had zero warning that a problem existed. Paid $2138 for repairs. Asked jeffrey Honda/Acura to check condition of clutch because it was slipping, difficult to engage at times. Informed clutch starting to show wear/air in system and may need to be replaced. Told jeffrey Honda/Acura clutch replaced 10/2013! they thought it was original part. Told to take it back to troy Acura. Troy told me that warranty had expired (12,000 miles or one year) and I would have to agree to $995 fee to have problem investigated and cost of repairs since warranty no longer valid. Additionally, there was nothing that could be done without me agreeing to cover costs of investigation. I disagreed with them. Manager at troy suggested that I look in Acura handbook for 800 number and contact Acura client services because he did not have number to call since I had already declined to have problem investigated by them. This was poor workmanship or defective part. Acura and troy Acura should be held accountable for such blatant early failure on clutch.
