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.

In November, I purchased 4 new Continental extremecontact dws for my car. In March, during pothole season, I quickly learned that these new tires have soft sidewalls and easily develop sidewall bubbles. I had to replace two of the tires during this time period. I've never - in my 15 years of driving - had to replace a tire due to a sidewall bubble. Curious, I typed "Continental dws sidewall bubble" into google and found online forums loaded with folks complaining of the same issue. It's pretty clear based on my own experience, and online reports from others, that the Continental dws tires have weaker than usual sidewalls, and develop bubbles at a much higher rate than other tires. After spending so much on tires within a six month period, I asked Continental to replace just one of the tires under warranty (the tire shop had mercy and replaced one for free!). Continental's initial warranty includes road hazard protection for the first 2/10ths of wear, which this tire easily fell under. After meeting all of Continental's requirements for the warranty information, they have stopped responding to my customer service inquiries. They said it would take three weeks to receive a check. It's been three months. Please open an investigation into the sidewall issues of these tires. It is clearly a known issue, and Continental refuses to take responsibility - even when they are supposed to be covered under warranty! my next complaint will be filed with the ftc for false warranty claims, since they refuse to honor the warranty under the rules they developed; rules that I met. Consider this filed complaint my official notice to Continental. If I die due to a tire defect, this notice is placed in a file for my lawyer.

I purchased this car new in May 2011. Within almost two years I had to replace the original brake pads and rotors I was told by my local dealer that this is normal. I have never had to replace brakes with such low mileage. Now as of today, 06/18/2014 my car has been back in the shop twice with in the last two months for more brake problems. I replaced the right rear caliper in 4/2014 with about 720000 miles and now today I am replacing the left rear caliper. I have had a Honda Accord coupe that I have put well over 100000 miles on and have never had to replace calipers. I am very unhappy and I think an investigation should be put on this car year of 2010 brake system as there are several complaints on the net regarding this. I have spent almost $2000 on brakes this is ridiculous with having a such a "new" car also had a problem w tires had to replace at 48000 also stock Michelin tires. Unheard of Honda needs to do better with their stock parts!
