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 contact owns a 2014 Honda Accord. While driving at approximately 5 mph, the vehicle suddenly began to shudder and lose power. In addition, the instrument panel lights began to flash. The vehicle was towed to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the fuel injector needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was not notified. The failure mileage was 200.

We smelled fuel when driving to church on a Sunday. Thinking it was some leftover fuel splashed, we continued but then the smell became really intense. So we turned around and returned toward home. Upon entering our street, suddenly the vehicle stalled totally out and came to a stop in middle of the road! we rolled it over to the side, it is a neighborhood street; then started car again and went slowly downhill to the house; car stalled again just outside our house, we could not get it into driveway, very strong fuel smell; we pushed it to get it parked on the street. Tried again later that day to start the car but it wouldn't start, very strong fuel smell and gasoline leaking onto the street. Car towed to Honda dealer next day; after technicians examined the car they concluded "rodent damage" to the fuel line leading to the fuel tank. They would not cover any of the damage as it "wasn't manufacturer defect." Also called national Honda customer service and opened a case; but they would not agree either to cover anything. We were very lucky we weren't on a highway or interstate when this suddenly stalled out, we could have been rear ended as the car suddenly stopped with no warning! the fuel line last portion leading into the tank is made of rubber, it is not metal or hard plastic like the rest of the line and therefore subject to something sharp puncturing it--which is a defective design in our view. The new part they put on is same as the old, the same thing could happen again. There is no shield under the fuel tank area to keep things from underneath getting up in there. Honda should at least cover the cost of the repair (we paid $684.09), car is almost brand new. And we believe this is a safety hazard, car can shut off with no warning. Thank you for your help.

My 2014 Honda Accord sport with only 5687 miles on it suddenly accelerated as I was pulling into a parking space. I was driving approximately 5 mph. I had to slam on the brakes to avoid driving over the concrete barrier. I have recently noticed a strong gasoline smell upon starting the vehicle, which dissipates after a few minutes. This was an extremely scary experience.

Rodent damage to gas line, emission system, gas tank, and numerous other parts in an actively driven car (not stored). Leading to major gas leak (half a tank of gas in a duration of a standstill at red light) that placed drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and bystanders' life at risk. Would've lead to catastrophic ending if exhaust was hot. Gas spilled over stretch of 2 blocks, majority concentrating at intersection between heath and main St. Buffalo NY, which required the fire department to clean up. 911 was contacted for patches of flammable gasoline, which could have been ignited for numerous reasons leading to fatality. Reason for filing compliant. Vehicle which this happened to was a brand new 2014 Honda Accord purchased in June 2014. Repairs denied to be covered under warranty by Honda dealership and America Honda. Stating accident events like this is not covered, and is not a mechanical defect. Two conservative repair required, still not fixed. Dysfunctional car for a period of 6 days and counting. For rodent damage to occur in a brand new, actively driven car is indicative of obvious flaws in the design itself. 1. the machinery was exposed and unprotected. 2. the quality of built material was substandard for it to be damaged in a overnight situation by some "rodent" no larger than those that can fit in, and maneuver, within a confined space (seriously, I do not believe a rodent would randomly choose my car on the street to squeeze into and just bit a wire (numerous wires) without purposes of building a news or for food). 3. disproportion between the price paid for the car and the quality of service which followed it.

I have a brand new 2014 Honda Accord sport. It hesitates when I accelerate from almost any speed. This is dangerous as I am nervous if I have to accelerate quickly for any reason, and getting on the highway can be tough too. I have seen others list this same issue on here, it's obviously a big problem with this car.

The car is experiencing a very hesitant acceleration upon initial acceleration to the point of almost stopping. This has continued now with just over 1,000 miles. Called the local Honda dealer and was told by a maintenance representative that this problem has been reported to them, but there is no fix known. The problem is definitely a safety hazard as you can not depend on the car accelerating when needed. It does not have reliable acceleration from a stop. I was told by the maintenance representative that the car is a fly-by- wire and has no throttle cable any longer, but is controlled by the computer. He assured me there was no fix known nor did Honda Corp inform them of a problem or a fix. I feel very unsafe with this condition and have no feeling of reliability with the car's acceleration.

Hesitation (unexpected acceleration) occurs intermittently at low speed. When the car is at a low speed and more power is needed and the accelerator is pressed there is no response initially; accelerator is then pressed more and the car then accelerates much more than was expected, resulting in a jerky, on/off type action. I believe this could cause an accident either when trying to merge into traffic or when trying to accelerate gently and having the car accelerate more than expected (in a parking lot or heavy slow traffic etc).
