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.

My 2010 Honda Accord coupe was making a metallic "squealing" sound when I applied the brakes (and, eventually, after applying the brakes). I took my car to the dealer (union park Honda in wilmington de) to have the brakes looked at and was told that they needed to be replaced "with an updated factory part". afterward I saw the numerous complaints about 2008-2009 Honda Accord rear brake wear after as little as 15,000 miles. My 2010 Accord (which was not one of the 2010's included in the class action lawsuit) had almost identical issues. Also of note is that the rear brakes were at 1mm of material left (out of 10mm), while the front brakes were at 7mm (out of 10mm), so this would not indicate wear due to driving conditions.
