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.

CarComplaints.com 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.

Takata recall: I received the takata air bag recall notice in the mail over 40 days after it was issued. The parts will not be available until fall of 2016. The remedy Honda provided is to "not have a passenger sit in the front seat." This is insane. How is this possible" someone has been siting in my front seat for the past 40 days before I received the recall and now my car is basically inoperable for passengers for the next 3-6 months? this is not a sufficient remedy of a products completed mistake by Honda. We should be provided rental cars and rental reimbursement until the cars are fixed. I have already called Honda's customer support number and was told I would get a call by a "case manager" in three days. This is extremely disappointing and completely dangerous. The recall verbatim lists " metal fragments could pass through the airbag causing injury to the passenger". well why wouldn't those fragments hurt someone in the backseat or come over to the driver side" Honda is basically saying if you get in a car crash and your airbag deploys you are going to get hurt. Please help Honda be accountable for this grievance.

Supplemental restraint system indicator was blinking on and off, now it stays on all the time. Dealer said that the SRS computer was not communication with the resistant system and the first step is to change the SRS computer. If that doesn't work, the next steps are to replace the airbag senors in the seat or any sensor in that supplemental restraint system. The initial cost to replace the SRS computer is $746.28. Dealer said this is a safety issue. Repair scheduled for 21-Oct-2015. The problem started on 10-Oct-2015.

Front passenger airbags deployed without impact on my 2010 Honda Accord causing passenger injury. Honda verbally agreed to cover all costs then broke the verbal contract which has left me in a financial disaster as I am now having to pay for my monthly car payment as well as payments towards a loan of $14,000 to cover all costs of the airbag incident........ September 2014 I was involved in a automobile accident in which the air bags should have deployed but instead failed.
