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.

Windshield washer freezes extremely easily, causing a horribly unsafe condition in winter driving. As an example, I have -30 degree washer fluid in the car, it is 25 degrees out this morning, car sat in the garage all night. After a 15 minute drive, washer fluid is completely frozen and will not come out at all. Tried several times. Almost caused an accident for me because I could not see with the salt on the road.

Windshield has coating, or appears to have internal laminate defect in manufacture. When damp or wet, visibility is made worse by use of wipers causing extremely reduced visibility & excessive glare from opposing traffic. Night driving in rain is extremely hazardous.

Just purchased my 2014 Honda Accord LX. I live in a rural area with many small hills. While driving home I noticed the low beam headlights seem to be out of Focus, not illuminating objects on the side of the road within 25 feet from the vehicle, nor can you see street signs within that distance. Worse, when going up and down the small hills the roadway visibility changes rapidly depending on the angle of the car, often dropping the visibility to a scary 10-50 feet at 55 mph. Yes, you can use you high beams to help "if conditions permit". nevertheless, when this happens it is very unnerving and undoubtedly unsafe! I did notify Honda America and open a case #N012014-08-2801669, however, I was informed that nothing could be done, as that was the design of the headlights. This is very unsafe and needs to be addressed quickly!!!!

The headlights on this car are terrible at night. I have perfect vision, uncorrected, and still there is like a straight dark bar across where the top of the headlights reach and nothing is visible above that point. The high beams are a little better but you obviously can't always drive with them on. This is a definite safety issue.

The contact owns a 2014 Honda Accord. The contact stated that while traveling approximately 50 mph on the highway, a loud pop was heard. The contact discovered that the glass from the sunroof had shattered and imploded into the interior of the front driver's side and the front passenger's side of vehicle. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer, who diagnosed that the sunroof needed to be repaired. The vehicle was to be inspected and repaired. The VIN was not available. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 5000.

Second day I had the vehicle I was driving at night and had no issues on the highway but turning onto a rural highway with no lights I found that the visibility thru the windshield was relegated to the bottom third. The rest of the windshield appeared dark and almost impossible to see thru. I contacted the dealer and returned the vehicle and was told that what I encountered was normal because Honda uses a look down headlight system, in fact the service manager said his wife only drove with the brites on in dark areas because she could not see thru the windshield. I said this was unacceptable and the service manager said he could try to mitigate the effects by raising the headlight adjustment, but he warned me that at some point the headlights might blind oncoming traffic. He raised the level of the lights and I then inspected the results later that night. I found that I had almost half of the windshield clear and the rest was shaded very dark. I believe that this is a safety defect in this vehicle and I have asked the dealer to make repairs. So far there seems to be no repair available. I drive a lot on these back roads and I hope I will not have an accident because of this defect.

Whenever it rains moderately or heavy the drivers side windshield wiper pulls back the water in my sight of view. This is an annoyance and a safety hazard that I would like to get corrected.
