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.

The SRS sensor indicator light came on around Sunday 10/30/2016. Took the car into middletown Honda (middletown, NY) for a diagnostic test, they confirmed it was the sensor and that it isn't covered by my warranty. I looked on the dot website and entered my VIN and saw my car doesn't fall under the recall. But there is, in fact, a recall for the SRS sensor in 341,000 other Honda Accord. I called the 1-800 number for Honda, and they told me there is nothing they can do because my car doesn't fall under the recall because of where my car was manufactured. This doesn't seem right, considering the part has clearly failed. As far as I understand, this could possibly cause all of my airbags to fail. I would like this issue to be fixed. I understand that my car doesn't fall under the current recall, but maybe more cars need to be added to this recall. The part has gone bad and I think it should be corrected.

In July, 2016, I received notice NHTSA recall 16V-346 informing me of a problem with the airbags in my 2010 Honda Accord. Called the Honda dealership, gardena Honda, where I bought the car and get it serviced. They said they would order the part and call me when it arrived. On August 20th and August 27, I called to see if part was in, and dealership claimed it was still on order and that they would call me when it came in. I never received a call back. On Nov 2, I called again to the gardena Honda dealership. I spoke with kim, who claimed there was no record of my car being serviced there ( I have brought it 3-4 times a year since purchased in 2010!) or the recalled part being ordered. I asked to speak with the manager. She took my name and phone number, but never received a call back. I am concerned for my safety and that of my passengers due to the defective air bags I will take legal action for any injuries resulting from the defect, which I have tried for several months to repair.
