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.

During low speed driving (approximately 30-40 mph) and squeaking noise was emitting from the right rear tire. Prior to this, the power steering warning light, anti lock brake warning light, anti skid warning light, all illuminated. When the car was diagnosed at dch Honda, temecula it was reported that the right rear wheel bearing was broken / falling apart. It was stated by the mechanic that the car would not be safe to drive until the bearing was replaced and that this was covered under the powertrain warranty. However, there was no previous notification (technical bulletins, recalls) on this issue. Drivers beware. The mechanic informed me that there was significant "play" in the rear wheel while attached to the hub. If the bearing came completely undone, the wheel could come off while driving.

While using the adaptive cruise control (acc) I was traveling at 75 mph. This system is suppose to reduce your speed when it sees another vehicle in front of you and then bring you back up to speed when the obstacle is no longer present. I was on a 4 lane limited access highway (2 lanes each direction). I was in the left lane. There were no cars in front of me but there was an 18 wheel truck about 150 feet in front of me in the right lane. We were approaching a left curve and on a slight incline to the curve. As we entered the curve the acc sonar detector saw the 18 wheeler in the other lane and disengaged the acc and applied the brakes, without warning. This brought my speed down quickly from 75. This is the second time this occurred in similar circumstances. The real danger here is that there was no reason for the car to brake; the sonar saw an obstacle in a different lane; had another vehicle been following me the surely would have been a crash. I am a former crash investigator. As such, I can tell you this situation will be problematic. Fortunately, the car gives you the option of using the acc or traditional cruise control - I have disabled the acc for safety concerns.

I went to pull my visor down and I heard a loud crack noise from the visor. The visor will not stay up anymore, just hangs about 2-3" from the ceiling of the car. Went to the dealer and they told me it's not covered under warranty even if it's only a year old.

This car has push button start on and off. The engine can be cut off with car in any gear and it does not have to be in park. I left the car in drive on a hill and went to get out and the car was drifting forward. I bought this car for safety features and this is a great concern. Has collision, lane change warnings and they are so low you can not hear them. I am 67 and my husband is 71 and this is not a safe car for our age group.called Honda and the warnings can not be cut up and there is nothing can be done about car drifting if you do not put in park. Very disappointed.
