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.

A/C in my 2006 Honda Accord SE I had purchased only 2 weeks prior was coming out as water vapor and stopped working altogether. Took it to the dealership and they ran a diagnostic and said a rock or pebble must've hit the compressor, and that this type of repair is not covered under my bumper to bumper wrap warranty. It cost $100 for the diagnostic alone, and would be an additional $550 for the actual repair. Absolutely outrageous for a car I had less than a month!

2006 Honda Accord we bought brand new 2.5 years ago. 55,000 miles and the A/C condenser needs to be replaced for $800 due to a puncture from a rock. Not covered under Honda warranties, not considered "normal wear and tear" even though you can read numerous complaints on the internet regards the same problem.

2006 Honda Accord - A/C condenser broke twice due to road debris, told not covered under warranty and was a rare occurrence - however I see several other people reporting the same problem. Without ac windows fog up on rainy humid days and visibility is impaired. Total design flaw on behalf of Honda and they should recall the item.

I noticed my air conditioner in my 2006 Honda Accord was not blowing cold air and I made an appointmentwith a Honda dealer on 8/13/07 and was told road debris punctured my A/C condenser and was not covered under the warranty. The grill design allows road debris to come into air conditioner.

The contact owns a 2006 Honda Accord LX. After driving a mile, the contact stated that the air conditioner failed to blow cold air. The fan was activated, but no cold air was produced. The dealer stated that the cause of failure was a puncture in the condenser. She also had a private mechanic inspect the vehicle, but no hole was found in the condenser at that time. The contact called Honda headquarters and was told that the failure is not under warranty. The powertrain was unknown. The current mileage is 14,700 and failure mileage was 14,000.
