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.

Took my vehicle in for air bag recall, a few months later, the SRS light came on. Took vehicle back to same dealer that had replaced air bag and now I'm told that the SRS unit has gone bad and no safety features (air bags, seat belts) will work if I am in a crash. I can pay over $730 to fix this unit. Additionally, I am asked when my battery had died- which it hasn't died. However, the only time in the last few years when my battery was touched was when they disconnected it to replace the drivers recalled air bag. Then I'm told that this major safety component is not covered under any warranty from Honda and was in no way connected or effected by the air bag replacement they did a few months prior. I find this incredibly suspect and have noticed others posting the same complaint about replaced airbags and SRS unit replacements. So, even after this recall, I have a car that isn't safe and I feel that this new issue is a result of the earlier work with the airbag replacement. Please, please, please look into this relationship to see if recall replacement units or procedures are causing this SRS unit to malfunction. We're having to pay almost $1000 to fix this and I don't feel that we'd be in this predicament without some fault of Honda or the technicians at my local dealer.

2006 Honda Accord driver shoulder seat belt will not retract or extend. On May 19, 2014 got into my Honda Accord and could not get my drivers seat belt to work. Honda will not replace this faulty seat belt under the seat belt warranty even though this malfunction was not caused by an accident, collision or misuse. Honda is not concerned with safety. Seat belts save lives and in Louisiana wearing a seat belt is the law, but according the Honda of covington and the Honda headquarters they are not required to replace a faulty seat belt.
