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.

The daylight running lights on the 2008-2010 Honda Accord are very bright and the signal lights are relatively dim and directly inboard of the running lights making the signal lights extremely difficult to see. The daylight running lights mask the signal light. As the daylight running lights are always on, the danger is any time during daylight hours. No fix has been offered by Honda. Permanently disabling the daylight running lights on this automobile is the only sensible answer to this problem.

The high beam drls on the Honda Accord are masking the inboard turn signals. While approaching a left turn I was unable to discern whether an oncoming Accord had its turn signals activated until very late in making my maneuver. Because NHTSA has determined that drls are of no benefit to overall safety, it should require Honda to deactivate the high beam drls on all Accord models of the current generation.

I have had a hard time seeing some of the newer model cars at dusk dawn and night. It seems that some of the newer models have daytime running lamps that consist only of head lights which the drivers mistaken for have all their lights on. So a car may have headlamps but no tail lamps. I do approve of drl's ( I turn on my lights at all times) but they should include tail lamps. I believe this new setup is more dangerous than helpful.
