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.

Well bought the car last week and they told me that it needed a transmission fluid change well clearly that didn't work at all. It has a hard time shifting between 3 and 4 and lost almost complete power while driving and then hard shifted scared the crap out of me. This is a safety issue!!!!

Accord EX 4 cyl

Honda had recall on transmission which they replaced. Now the car is acting up again. For the past two months I have continued to have to park it while trying to determine what is wrong. The vehicle would not go, bog down, jump into gear, etc. After 3 repair places, it seems that the torch converter code is now on. Thought I saw where there was recall on the torch converter also...still researching as to what to do.
