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.

I have a 2009 Honda Accord with 27,000 miles and at the dealer today they told me that I needed new brakes at a cost of over $500. I have always got over 50,000 miles from a set of brakes on all of the other cars and trucks that I have owned. I now find out that there has been a class action suit over the brakes on this car.

2009 Honda Accord was found by dealer to have "no rear brakes" today during a service visit. Per the dealer, Honda changed the brake proportioning for these vehicles so that on the highway, all of the braking is done by the rear wheels. As a result, the rear pads are worn to "nothing" per the dealer while the front pads are "hardly worn at all."
