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.

2013 Honda Accord Owner Comments

problem #6

  • 93,000 miles


On two of our tires the rubber cracked and completely split from the radial around 1/3 to 2/3 around the tire about 0.25" from the wheel rim. This happened on 2 of the 4 tires (all the same dot and installed at the same time.) the rear tires show the initial signs of the same defect but the rubber hasn't separated yet from the radial. The tires have about 45,000 miles on them installed and service by Firestone. Luckilly there was not an accident, breakdown, fire, etc; however, it is very suspicious that all four tires have nearly the same defect. I have pictures of the tires. Dot Y9bc clhx 3315. Brand prime wall size 205/65/R16 on 2013 Honda Accord. Located in san diego California.

Accord 6-cyl

  • 3,552 miles
I bought a new 2013 Honda Accord 2dr ex-L V6 off the floor of the dealership on April 1, 2014. The dealer had changed the standard 18 in wheels to 19's and the standard good year tires to brivery dgestone turanza el 400 02's. after I had put about 3,500 miles on the car, a small staple (1/16 in deep) punctured one tire just between the wall and the tread, and the wall failed and it ran flat. I took it back to the dealer and they said there was no warranty on these tires. There was a good year tire warranty booklet in the glove box but no Bridgestone booklet for the turanza's. when I put the spare tire on to take the car back to the dealer, I learned that the spare was mounted on a 17 in rim and was not a low profile tire like the turanza's. my complaints are (1) the 17 inch standard tire for a spare when it is 2 inches smaller than the other tires and is not a low profile. I am worried that if I drive very far on the spare I will damage running gear or break an axle due to these differences. (2) all the turanza's on the Honda say they were made in Japan and when I tried to register the tires on line with Bridgestone, it asked for a city and dot. The dot is ejn1jhe3612 but there is no city on the tire so can't register it. The Bridgestone website lists locations of manufacturing plants but none are listed in Japan. Am I running knock-off Bridgestone tires? and (3) the tire failed at the intersection between the wall and the tread from a very small staple that barely stuck to the rubber and it should not have were it made to industry standards. Thank you

False low tire pressure indication. Honda Accord owned for 12 months, less than 12,000 miles, I have received a low tire pressure indication for the fourth time. The previous three times, before taking my Accord to the dealership, I checked the tire pressure. All four tire pressures are within recommended settings. After receiving my vehicle after service, the service department reports all four tire pressures are low. The last time the service manager indicates the tires need to be re-inflated every 2 - 3 thousand miles. Continued false indications is as much as a safety issue as the indicator not working at all.

I have had 3 (or 4) false low tire pressure warnings. The first 3 times the dealer refused to do anything other than check the pressure and reset the light. The last time I had an alarm I drove another 25 miles and then looked at the tires. I could see nothing wrong so I assumed it was another false alarm. This incident occurred on a Saturday so the dealer was closed and I continued the trip we had planned. When I finally went to the dealer, it was 5 days and 300 miles later, the dealer did find a nail and the pressure was 24 psi. Now the dealer is telling me that he has researched the Honda data base and/or talked to Honda and there is nothing else they can do until I bring it in again with a false alarm. They will then connect the computer and begin a procedure.
