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.

2010 Acura TSX Owner Comments

After driving for about 30 minutes the brake pulsate so bad the vehicle doesn't want to stop. Acura is blaming the driver and is making me drive to the original dealership 120 miles one way to have the problem fixed. After doing a google search. This seems to be a big problem for Acura Tsx owners.

The rear brake pads in my 2010 Acura Tsx went from 5mm of pad, to 0 in 3000 miles. One day they worked fine, and the next day the rotors were taking abuse. $491 later, the dealership reluctantly informed me of a class action lawsuit that we never heard about. ""

I have a 2010 Acura Tsx with 28,000 miles that needs rear brakes replaced. Front brakes are fine but rear brakes are worn down to the metal. Acura won't stand behind the warranty saying this is normal wear. They tell me I am one of the lucky one because most are replacing at 12,000 miles. Your front brakes should wear out before your rear brakes and my front brakes are in great shape. As I have researched online there are numerous complaints. I will have to replace the rear brakes in order to pass inspection on a 10 month old car. Acura wants to charge me $390 to do this. The service manager admitted that Acura has a problem but they are not aloud to replace any rear brakes under warranty. Obviously the manufacturer has a problem with the way the braking system is set up on this car and it needs to be recalled and corrected. Once again the consumer will get left holding the bag.

My 2010 Acura Tsx brake pad wore out @ 21K miles. A day after I started hearing noise I turn it into the dealer. They tell me the brake pads wore out and that the rotors are damaged. I end up having to pay $321.20 in repairs. I still am hearing noise from the rear wheel as it is not fully repaired. I'll have to take time off work to take it in yet again. I have a 2006 Honda element in the garage and I never replaced the pads yet. There's a serious problem with this. I am very unhappy.

My 2009 Acura Tsx needs brakes at 25,000 miles when on average brakes should be changed at 50,000. This is a way for the automakers to make money from the pockets of the consumer.
