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.

While beginning to accelerate from a parking spot, going somewhere between one to five miles per hour all passenger side air bags deployed. I thought for sure Honda would be willing to correct this major safety issue but much to my surprise, they were very rude and refused to pickup any costs I incurred from this incident ( a little over $10000 ).

While slowly accelerating at less than 5 mph all passenger side airbags deployed without any impact to vehicle, in process of trying to get Honda to take responsibility for faulty equipment. Currently they are refusing and trying to push the claim onto my insurance company even though there was no accident.

My wife was driving 2010 Honda Accord back from work at 2:00pm afternoon. She was in the next street which was hardly 500 ft long at the appx speed of 20mph. She lost the control and hit a small tree on left side end of the street and car rolled over. Fortunately there was no one on the road and she was wearing seat belt and front airbag deployed. But even though car flipped & rolled over, side & curtain airbags did not deploy which possibly resulted in very serious injury to her left hand. Both the driver side & passenger side window glasses completely shattered. She never lost her consciousness and she could not recall why this happened. All she remember is that she was going to hit the tree and tried to steer away from it.
