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.

2006 Honda Accord Owner Comments

problem #5

Jul 012011

Accord 4-cyl

  • 47,000 miles


Veh is a 2006 4cyl Accord coupe veh started shuddering during slow to moderate acceleration when RPM's reached around 12-1500 and speed was approx 35mph. Veh has approx 47K mi on same. Dealership tried to sell transmission fluid service even though it had less mileage than manual recommended for service. Took multiple trips to 2 separate dealerships (all over 1hr away) before problem was addressed under the power train warranty. 2nd dealer also admitted veh shifted harder than it should and replaced the torque converter. Repair only lasted approx 30K mi and veh needs repair again. Veh now shudders more frequently and at different speeds though acceleration is always slow to moderate. Previous repair only had a 1yr warranty and power train warranty has expired. Honda had a class action lawsuit for this same issue but same was settled before my veh was built therefore it is not included in the suit but I feel this is related. Veh also has paint issues however those are not necessarily a "safety" issue.

Accord 6-cyl

  • miles
Water leaked into the trunk damaging some materials that were being stored in the trunk. After a trip to the dealership (third trip for various problems), the dealership returned the vehicle with an explanation that it did not leak water. I know the car did indeed leak water. I certainly would not be able to drive around with the trunk up and have clearance to see! I feel Honda repaired the leak and then returned it stating it did not leak. The particle board covering the tire is warped now. Since Honda claims it did not leak, there is nothing I can do.

Water was discovered in trunk. Office equipment stored in trunk was damaged. Honda dealer found leak to be coming from rear window and resealed the leak. In servicing the vehicle they have damaged it further and it has required 6 trips thus far to attempt to correct their errors. Parts are on order and unfortunately will require more trips to the service department.
