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 #1

May 192011

Accord 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Honda Accord. The contact stated the power steering hose leaked oil into the exhaust system. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who stated there were no recalls for the failure and the cost to replace the hose would be $400. The manufacturer was contacted and a claim was filed. The manufacturer offered no other assistance. The vehicle was not repaired. The VIN was unknown. The failure mileage was 90,000. Updated 06/10/11 the power steering high pressure hose leaked onto the exhaust generating smoke and a burning smell. The vehicle was taken to an Acura dealer who stated that the smoke was caused by a failure of the high pressure steering hose which was included on a safety recall by the same manufacturer for two separate Acura models with the same engine and high pressure power steering hose as the one in the Honda Accord. However, there was no recall for the failed part on the Honda model. The replacement hose and installation would cost $400. The manufacturer was contacted and a claim was filed. The manufacturer offered no other assistance. The vehicle was repaired by the Acura dealer at the vehicle's owners expense of $438.80. The replacement part listed on the dealers repair invoice is the same as the failed part listed on the service bulletin filed with the NHTSA by the manufacturer. Updated 08/31/11
