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. Consumer writes in regards to check engine light and vsa light issues. The dealer found the wheel sensor on the left front was bad, due to internal failure the dealer replaced the sensor. They also found the left front wheel bearing was leaking grease and caused the wheel sensor to go bad. They replaced the left wheel bearing. The high button on the passenger seat warmer light was inoperable. Also, the third clutch pressure switch failed. The dashboard was bubbling in the center and the steering wheel was completely discolored. The power windows were moving slowly up and down.

Brake pedal is freezing. Why is this not a recall!? it was a cold morning (3 degrees F). I warmed up the car, left my road and, as I approached the light at the main road, I went to apply the brakes and the brake pedal was like a rock. It wouldn't move. I'd already applied the brakes several times before getting to that point. I looked down at the pedal to see if anything was in the way. With little time to react and the gear shift reading like war and peace in that moment, I threw the car into park to try to reduce the impact as I hit 2 of the cars at the light. I immediately called 911. While on the phone with them, I heard a hissing sound and the brake pedal finally gave way. I phoned the dealer and was told the same thing happened to two other people that day--just from that one dealership. I got nowhere with them because I was out of warranty. I called Acura corporate and they could not have cared less. They asked what I wanted and I said, "I want you to care about why your brake pedal is freezing." With my car still at the body shop, I phoned the dealer again. They said they think it's a faulty check valve and vacuum line that lets condensation freeze in the line. And guess what" those parts happened to be on a national back order...but there's no recall!??" I went to the dealership and met with the general manager, who agreed to provide me with a loaner until the parts came in after the body shop was done with my car. The plan was to drive the car slowly from the body shop to the dealer. But then the body shop called to tell me the brake pedal froze on them as they went to pull it into the garage to work on it (again, it was a cold morning). They didn't feel comfortable letting me drive it so called the dealer on my behalf who agreed to pick it up and tow it to the dealership. It hasn't happened since the repair but it hasn't been that cold.
