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.

  • 59,700 miles


Tuesday, January 26th, 2016, approx.9:45pm, my wife and I were traveling home from New Jersey back to New York through highly populated traffic and pedestrian zones. Our 2007 Honda Accord 4cyl, sedan with 59,700 miles came to a stop while traveling approx 20mph as we passed an intersection due to driver side curtain and seat deploying without cause. No other vehicle/pedestrian was involved, fortunately, and no damage was done to our vehicle. However the airbags strictly on the driver side, that are not part of a recall, deployed/malfunctioned thus potentially may have caused a serious or fatal accident had another vehicle or pedestrian been nearby. Local dealer, paragon in woodside, appraised damage and cost of repair at $6,000 parts and labor. The service engineer concluded any dips in roads, potholes, hills, basically landscapes that direct/force the front of a vehicle forward could potentially set off the sensor for airbag deployment. Contrary to their 'professional' statement our vehicle did not see such a scenario where only driver side of vehicle would require airbags being deployed. Should the road conditions been severve all airbags should of deployed. Having said that this should not be the case. Should their statement be "true" consequently airbags would be going off with no accidents more often, and this would be a regular repair and putting a greater population at risk. We believe the driver side malfunctioned and we cannot be held reponsible when this safety feature is out of our control. We cannot stress this enough that there was no accident. Vehicle was moving in a straight line 20mph going through a green light, on a modest incline downhill at best. Bear in mind I've driven through that intersection on a regular basis and this has never happened before. I would happily re demonstrate. The airbags that deployed are not part of a recall

The driver seat to the 2007 Honda Accord is incredibly uncomfortable. I believe it causes poor posture and occupational injuries when I drive the car consistently on my daily commute. I commute a daily round trip of 1.5 hours. In 2012 I noticed how uncomfortable the seat was becoming. I could not find a good posture, and ultimately was diagnosed with myofascial trigger points with comorbid spinal pain as a result of driving in the car. I am not overweight, very slim actually. I have no other pre-existing conditions. My wife also complains that the seat causes her back pain when she uses it temporarily. The head rest protrudes and pushes the head forward into a chin-to-chest position. The sides of the seat cup the shoulders and back, pushing the shoulders forward and promoting a slouch or sideways sitting posture. I believe this is a design flaw.

[xxx] of apollo casualty company insurance as subrogee of [xxx], our insured says we were driving West on stearns road when we noticed a plastic/rubber smell coming from the dashboard. About 30 seconds later we noticed smoke coming from the passenger side dash. At which point we pulled over and exited the vehicle. I walked over to the passenger side to check on the smoke and immediately noticed flames from up under the dash. We backed away from the vehicle and within two minutes the car was engulfed in flames.

On a six hour vacation trip, I began to experience acute middle back pain. I had begun a new job about a year prior to this trip, in which I made commutes of about 1 hr. And 15 minutes round-trip on 4-5 days a week. I had noticed over the course of my new commute that my car seat became increasingly uncomfortable. However, while on this long six hour trip, about 3 hours into the trip I began to feel severe back pain. I don't think we had taken a rest break by this point in the trip. It became uncomfortable for me to rest my back in the seat, as my middle vertebrae felt very sensitive to the touch. It then became more difficult to sit in a chair for more than a few minutes, and of course the driving posture became increasingly painful and uncomfortable. After some chiropractic treatment, the intensity of the pain has lessened, but the discomfort has never fully gone away. In recent months a physician has treated my back pain by with a prescription strength topical neuro/inflammation ointment. The physician has not yet given a specific diagnosis to my condition, but the pain and discomfort seems to be lessening very gradually. I believe the pain and discomfort is caused by the pronounced "cupping" shape of my car's seat and headrest, which keeps me from finding a comfortable posture while driving, especially on long-distance drives.

The contact owns a 2007 Honda Accord. The contact stated that the driver's side seat rail would not allow the seat to lock into place, causing the seat to move freely as the contact was driving or applying the brakes. The contact was unsure as to what caused the failure. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer who replaced the seat rail. The failure mileage was 32,725.

Multiple electrical difficulties vehicle has been at the dealership on 2 separate occasions due to sporadic working of the power door locks and keyless entry system. They still have not found the issue. It is worse when it is humid and/or rains. During the winter months of 2007/2008; the stereo's lcd went warped and the whole stereo had to be replaced. On memorial day 2008; the drivers side seat caught fire while I was sitting in it parked waiting on my children to come out of a theme park. My husband burned his hand trying to put out the fire; and was out of work for about 2-weeks due to the burn. The dealership and Honda refused to take responsibility for this fire; which started inside the seat due to the electronic seats and/or heated leather seats, as determined by the insurance company appraiser. The seat had to be replaced, the electronic seat components, heated leather seat components, part of the center console, and the carpeting and floor mats. We got the car back on July 3. on Monday, July 7; my husband took the car to have it inspected (at the dealership); since the state inspection was past due. They rejected the inspection stating that the electronic system is not recognizing the seat belts. They later changed their tune when I called them and are now trying to say it wasn't that it was the airbag wasn't hooked up; and they could fix it. I know they are lying, and they are trying to cover their tracks as this I am sure is just another electrical issue in my car. I am at my wits end on what to do with this car. I can't afford to trade it in, I have spent over $1000 on rental cars waiting for it to be repaired, and now this. Also, the power door locks still do not work.

The seat on our 2007 Honda Accord ex has a terribly loud squeak/creak sound in it every time the car moves and/or we get in or out. We have taken it back to the dealer to fix three different times over the 8 months that we have owned it and they have replaced almost every part in the base, track and cushion, but the creak will not stay away longer than a couple days before it returns, often worse than before. I know it is not a life-threatening defect, but when you pay over $20,000 for a brand new car, this should not be happening or they should at least be able to fix it!

2007 Honda Accord LX. Delivery taken in December 2006. Front driver's seat has become extremely uncomfortable to sit in and drive. Lumbar support "wings" are extremely hard causing severe pain and numbness in my lower back (pain and numbness last for a time after I get out of car) if I sit and drive over 15 minutes. I visited dealership, told nothing they could do and to buy a lumbar roll for my seat. Came home and called customer service and I was informed that "a tech says" the foam can in fact become very hard under cold weather conditions as being experienced in Massachusetts in 2007. Was told to go out and buy a lumbar support pillow that inflates and put it in car only when I drive and run the heater before I get in for a while. Problem should disappear when weather warms up, but will continue during cold weather. This is totally unacceptable, car cannot be garaged to protect against cold weather. How can I drive this car in the future winters with this existing problem?
