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

Told by dealer that front control arm bushings were torn and needed to be replaced at $550. Researching on internet has revealed that there is a widespread problem with "compliance bushings" on these cars. Contacted Honda case #[xxx]. they said there is no recall. I believe they are ignoring a problem that could affect steering and they should be forced to repair this defect. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

1.) every time I tap my brakes in an attempt to slow down when on the highway, the front end of the car starts shaking. I had new tires put on, the breaks replaced and had the rotors checked. I had a check performed on the front end and the mechanic says there is nothing wrong with the brakes, front alignment or my tires. 2.) the cars shakes when I apply the breaks when slowing down while traveling at high speed. I had the suspension checked and nothing was noted out of the ordinary. 3.) when I start the car, the airbag light comes on stays on. Other times when I start the car. The airbag light comes on and goes off.

When nearing a stop and trying to make a right turn, it will make a sound... then keeps going before actually stopping... increasing risk of hitting car in front. Also when on the highway, car will want to kind of stall out die. Maybe a short circuit or something that is defective.

The contact owns a 2006 Honda Accord. While driving between 65-70 mph, the lower front driver's side ball joint failed and caused the axle to detach from the vehicle. The vehicle was towed to a dealer and they stated that the ball joint and axle damage was not due to normal wear and tear. The manufacturer will not cover the repair cost. The contact does not feel safe driving the vehicle. The current mileage was 55,000 and failure mileage was 54,000. Updated 05/19/09

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,791 miles
1) new wheel bearing at 10,768 miles 2) new transmission and removal/replacement of same shift cable at 10,791 miles (service tech acknowledges the noise on the work ticket) 3) rotate and balance of tires due to a serious vibration problem in the steering wheel at 10,791 miles 4) resurfacing of original rotors, 4-wheel alignment due to noise at 11,002 miles 5) replacement of old rotors with new rotors and brake pads at 11,184 miles. We cannot understand why all this work has been performed on our vehicle if everyone now states that they cannot hear the grinding noise. We have made multiple good faith attempts (5 logged which includes the final attempt, and 1 not logged), to have our car repaired correctly. At this time, we are only left with the route of arbitration procedures or be left with a substandard Honda product.
