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.

We had filed a complain with our 2007 Honda Accord for sudden acceleration. We have not picked up hundreds of identical accidents with injuries, etc. We have never received reply on what the NHTSA is doing about these accidents.

On 4 separate occasions I've been driving at highway speeds and before entering the highway( at 25-35 mph) and have felt a lurch forward movement from the vehicle almost like a rough shift from transmission(veh is automatic)--its happened when I've warmed the car up for less than my customary 10 minutes. I've felt it several times(4-5) while driving a distance of 25 miles)on each trip. I went to the dealer/balance tires/couldn't find anything/told to bring back when it happens/it happened again when it was snowing (and the other times I've noticed it. It was also snowing and the car hadn't been warmed up 10 minutes) the lurch is very noticeable when driving almost making you feel like the vehicle will "conk out"--which is scary to say the least when driving on a interstate.

I was driving into a mcdonald's parking lot, looking for an empty spot so that we could use the rest rooms. It was Nov. 30th, Sunday afternoon, and the loot was full of people returning from their thanksgiving holiday. Finally saw one open spot. As I turned right to enter the spot, there was a noise and a sudden acceleration. This parking spot ended with a 6 to 8 inch concrete curb. There was a sudden acceleration and my auto flew like a rocket ship into the concrete curb. Smoke was coming out of the engine, oil was flowing all over the pavement, people were screaming get out of that car. Fortunately, we turned the engine off immediately most probably avoiding a more serious problem. The damage to the body of my auto was almost $5000 and approximately the same amount to fix the engine. This car was only two years old with a mileage of approximately 22,000 miles. This car was in the Honda body shop for 4 weeks until the repairs were completed. They were unable to duplicate the surge and therefore made no correction for the failure.

On September 17, 2007, I was making a right turn into my parking space at my condo, when suddenly and quickly, my 2007 Honda Accord accelerated forward, causing the car to go over the parking block and crash into the palm tree on the lawn. The distance the car traveled was approximately 15-20 feet. It was quite freaky and extremely frightening. Fortunately, I did not sustain any serious injuries. If the palm tree had not been there, my car would have crashed into the front porch of my neighbor's ground floor condo. My Accord has not yet been towed away for damage assessment and repair. However, the police report listed the damage at approximately. $4000. I am very reluctant to drive a Honda vehicle ever again.

: the contact stated while driving 30 mph on normal road conditions, there was a loud popping sound from the front left side of the windshield. The sound also occurred when driving on rough roads. The sales/service dealer was notified and the vehicle was inspected. When the contact drove the vehicle again, the problem continued, so the vehicle was returned to the sales/service dealer. The sales/service dealer refused to provide a refund, replace the vehicle or to replace the seal to the windshield. The manufacturer was notified. The consumer found a service bulletin regarding improperly sealed windshields (molding problems) that cause popping/rattling noise. The vehicle was taken to the dealer but they claimed they could not hear the noise. The fuse box under the hood near the dashboard and in the interior of the car were tightened because they were loose. This affected the daytime running lights. The left front strut and the firewall were too close and were rubbing together. The gaskets were shrinking around the windshield which were causing the windshield vibrating problems. The windshield sprayer was clogged. The exhaust heat shields were loose. The front door window channels were lubricated and finally replaced because of the excessive rattling noise. The door jambs were irregular which added to the window rattling problem. Updated 01/10/08.
