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.

Pick this vehicle up from the dealer got one exit down on the highway and turned around because even holding the steel will perfectly straight with both hands on the wheel the car just drifts from side to side in the lane and is extremely difficult to keep control of while at highway speeds, I brought the vehicle back to the dealer who said that they put it back on the alignment machine and that there was nothing wrong with the alignment, I also am having issues with the rear defroster not working properly. I also pointed out a visual defect in the paint on the hood of the car which the dealer said I'll will call you back in a week or two and set up an appointment and will have to have the hood repainted I have yet five months later yet to hear back from this dealer ship as to when the going to actually repaint the hood on the vehicle.

I have purchased a 2013 Honda Accord touring model. It is equipped with a front collision warning system (fcw) which has a radar sensor in the grille. The system alerts can be set for long, normal or short. When set for long the alert should come on about three car lengths away from the vehicle ahead. If the system determines a collision is possible, it should give both visual & audible alerts, including a heads-up warning that flashes on the windshield. The fcw system is not working as it is described in the owners manual. In fact it only alerts @ random times. I have had the dealers technician check it out on highways, main streets & local streets. He could only get the system to give an alert once when the car ahead was standing at a red light. The alert came when we were about one car length away from the vehicle ahead. He tried it again @ the next red light & it did not give any alert. I have tested the system at all speeds & distances driving behind a car driven by my wife, no alerts. The technician said the system does not seem to be working & he would call american Honda to get information on how the system should work. Have been in touch with american Honda & at this point in time they do not admit that there is a problem. I would have no problem having them or any third party check out the fcw system.
