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. Notes: The 2000 Honda Accord suffers from widespread transmission failure, subframe rust, & problems with the airbag system (SRS). We recommend avoiding this model year like the plague.

The transmission begins slipping & eventually has to be replaced, typically soon after 90,000 miles & with a repair cost of over $2,000.

Subframe rust near the front passenger side wheel has become a problem recently, due to the poorly positioned A/C drain hose directly above that area. Repair cost to the subframe is over $2,000.

The SRS warning light likes to come on due to a defective seat belt sensor -- typically the driver's side. This sensor is covered under Honda's lifetime seat belt warranty, but some dealers charge a $100+ "diagnostic fee" or tell customers the entire SRS unit ($800) is bad.

problem #2

Jan 282011

Accord EX 3.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles


Basically, the light that lights up the engine temperature randomly doesn't come on when I turn my light on. Sometimes it lasts a minute, other times it lasts a month. This also occasionally happens to the left side of the speedometer.

Accord EX L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 118,000 miles

I have read of this problem on other sights as well. My instrument panel lights go out after my car has been running for a while. I ALWAYS drive with my lights on so no dashlights during the day is not a problem. At night however it is. I can't see how fast I'm traveling, although I can keep steady with surrounding traffic, if there is any, but cant see how much gas I have and the 'low gas' light does not work either. I carry a small flashlight for this reason but I believe this to be a safety hazard.
