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.

problem #1

C240 2.6L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 79,000 miles


lack of power when stepping on throttle

Purchased vehicle pre-owned from well known Acura dealership in Bay Area. Upon driving car after purchase, vehicle had noticeable rough idle 80% of the time. Also, when attempting to accelerate while entering freeway, vehicle revved/sounded like it was speeding up, but vehicle felt like it wasn't moving at the rate it sounded like. Brought vehicle in for inspection; Acura service was unable to locate problem. Service contracted with neighboring Mercedes-Benz dealer to inspect issue. Found the issue to be a failed throttle positioning sensor. Mercedes-Benz service replaced unit and returned to Acura service. Issue resolved.
