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 #2

Nov 032009

Accord Ex 2.2 Auto 2.2L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


Just bought a new set of silver alloy wheels and it was dark and raining in November when I collected the car fresh from the installer.....Drove about 50 miles that night and when I went out to the car the next morning the wheel was covered in black tar like grease from the front drive shaft boot cracked and grease splattered all over the new alloy wheel and stained right into the paint finish making it impossible to remove completely....The repair to the drive shaft and boot was $600 .......The repairs just keep going on and on and on and on and the car has only covered 80,000 miles from new.....So much for Honda reliability it should be changed to " Liability".......When will this sh*t ever end.?????????
