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. Notes: The 2010 Honda Accord has a solid reputation (so far), with one very significant flaw: uncomfortable seats.

Owners have consistently reported uncomfortable seats with the entire 8th generation (2008-2012) of Honda Accords. Complaints range from back pain to leg circulation problems due to bad lumbar support, cushioning, & seat angle. Complaints aren't limited to only a certain body type -- the seat comfort problems are from a wide spectrum of owner height & weight.

The common theme we hear is "we never noticed this during the test drive." Unfortunately for unwary buyers, the seat pain is noticeable after 15-20 minutes.

On my 2010 Honda Accord, occurring on all four doors, the window sweeps are melting. These are the strips that keep water from running down, into the door wells from the closed windows. The rubber strips were replaced a few years ago under warranty for this problem. Last fall, the new sweeps started to also melt down to a rubbery tar-like consistency. I complained to Honda about this defect to no avail. I was told that I would have to pay for new sweeps and for them to be installed. The impression that I received from the service person was that in warmer climate areas this is a problem. It appears that the newer Honda vehicles are not suitable for extreme weather conditions and Honda is not concerned with the situation. I have had two other older Honda vehicles in the past in the same location. Never had this happen.

2010 Honda Accord crosstour. Consumer states design defect impedes proper rear view vision. The consumer stated the rear window of the vehicle has a heavy bar running horizontally in the middle of the window. The bar may have been required for the structure of the rear door, but it substantially blocked the rear vision for the driver.
