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 2011 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.

I have took my car to the shop because it keeps speeding up and down and they said they didn't couldn't find anything wrong with the transmission and it's still doing it and I had the transmission fluid change hoping it would help it but it didn't.. they changed the fluid but not the filter.. now the transmission seal is leaking.. I have had this car to the shop several times.. the car speeds up going up or down hills or driving straight on flat roads.

Vehicle factory radio changes stations on its own and unexpectedly. This happens when the vehicle is stopped or moving. Vehicle heavily consumes oil. It requires 1.5 - 2 quarts of oil be added between scheduled oil changes.

I was driving on I-75 near ruskin Florida when the driver's side window imploded for no known reason. Florida highway patrol responded and could not see any evidence of the vehicle being struck by any foreign object. Glass ended up in several places including behind me (the driver and sole occupant), under the driver's seat, the far rear right seat and floorboard. I have photos. This happened around 6:40 P.M., July 11, 2016. I have contacted Honda and they refused to do anything about it.. I feel that this is a severe safety issue and should be investigated. I have additional photos

The rear window of my 2011 Honda Accord just exploded for no apparent reason. After searching the internet, I found that this has happened to a number of people with different makes and models of automobiles and that the most likely cause is defective rear window defroster wires. We were moving about 5 mph on a city street

I lost power and I notice battery light indicator came on after making a right turn while going 5 mph while raining in a puddle of water. Shortly after which, maybe 5 seconds, I regained power back. This has happened twice while turning during a rain, although it does not happen every time it rains.
