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.

Transmission went out got a used one. This one has same slipping issue. Error code P0715. I thought Hondas were supposed to be the premier cars to own. I have had nothing but trouble with this vehicle. I suspect the previous owner had similar issues and did not disclose this to me when I bought it. Is there a way to fix the transmission issue?

transmission slips when cold. I have to let the car fully warm up to not have the slipping occur. Also the passenger back window won't roll up once rolled down from the driver door and when my windows are wet the windows have a really hard time rolling up , they move very slow!!!

After seeing Honda and Transmission Problems, I realize I'm not alone. Honda will lose my business when transmissions are involved, because this should not be a problem. If you want to buy a car that you plan to keep for as long as possible, HONDA is not it. Everything is going haywire at 9 yrs/130,000 miles.

This is my second Honda Accord, and the last was idential. This will probably be my last Honda. I purchased this one new, kept the maintenance up, but Honda service thinks the car is old.

I thought the whole point of buying foreign was thinking Ford/Chevy didn't last long. Obviously Honda hasn't built their cars for longevity either.

Oil seals since the car was new have been replaced, window motors, door lock relays, engine seals, and now transmission. The last straw.
