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.

The driver wiper does not clear the water on the way down. It pulls water back into view of the driver which makes it appear like a streak. During a moderate and heavier rain it affects visibility making it difficult to see the left side of the lane (essentially like not having a wiper on drawing the draw back to the right - it clears as the relative wind breaks up the water. This issue could cause an accident.

The driver's side mirror is distorted causing the cars to appear further away than they actually are. There is a horizontal line that contributes to the distortion. I have been having a difficult time with this since I purchased the vehicle. It also makes me dizzy/have double vision as I look into the mirror after a few seconds. This distortion caused me to get into an accident where I was changing lanes thinking the vehicle in the lane left to me was further behind me. Both vehicles had extensive damage and the drivers injuries. On several other occasions I have vehicles beeped at me when I am changing lanes because they are closer than they appear in my mirror. I took the car back to Honda for the repairs and the employee was aware of the distortion the mirror causes. In fact, on the way to the dealership I almost had another crash, something I told the Honda representative. As I think back of when I test drove the vehicle before purchase, the salesperson took me on a road where there were no other vehicles passing by us so that I could realize the distortion. I contacted Honda's main customer service number and have been told that Honda designed their mirror that way so that the driver has a larger view of the vehicles in their blind spot. This design is flawed and causes a dangerous distortion making the vehicles appear further away and making the driver think that they have time to change lanes.

Affected parts: Windshield and wipers. This happened during the day time, about 8:45 am: A gentle rain was encountered so I turned on the windshield wipers to slow and steady (not intermittent). The water piled up on the windshield to the left by the door post and to the right near the middle of the windshield and continued to stay there until I slowed down to turn off the road. The right side (passenger side) was clear. The water restricted my view to the left and right (from the left door post to about 10:30 clock position, and from about 1:30 to 2:30 position. Dangerous in standard daylight, but this could be very dangerous at night, or with a much heavier rain. The car is new and this is my first experience with enough rain that I've had to turn the wipers on steady.
