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.

Sometimes when I press the gas pedal from a stop I will not get power and I'm afraid that an accident will occur when this happens. I believe the oxygen sensor may be the cause. Lack of power.

Hanging a handicap placard from the auto dimming rear view mirror caused a wiring harness short. The short was intermmitent at first and caused a partial loss of accessories (ac, radio, etc.) while driving. Within 5 miles of the loss of accessories, a hard short occurred and the vehicle could not be started. Luckily the vehicle had been parked when this condition occurred dealer refused to cover repair under warranty indicating that the condition was caused by an outside source (the handicap placard). I appealed to american Honda 7/13/16 and the same decision was upheld.

My 2014 Honda Accord has been leaving me stranded because the car kills the battery. It started last year and the dealer said the battery was fine, and left it at that. Now a year later the batter is still testing good but the car has left me 3 times in one day in 2 different occasions. I permanently have to cart jumping cables just I. case. I'm so sad to see that I'm paying and I've been such a faithful Honda client and this is really devestating.

The trunk has opened several times on its own. The vehicle was taken to the dealer twice. First time the latch and the cable were replaced. The second time I was told the key was reset. This is still happening and needs to be addressed.. vehicle is usually parked when this happens.

My car has a lane watch camera that engages when using your right blinker. When making an outbound call, you say the name of the person you are calling and then you receive a verbal notification "calling _____" if between this time and the time it takes for the system to initiate the call and dial tone starts you have to make a right turn, which engages the lane watch camera, the call is canceled. Once you've turned the corner and the camera has turned off, it will again say "calling ____" however it does not perform the call and just sits on that screen. If you live in a city where frequent turns are a normality, if you're trying to do so and make outbound calls it's very difficult and distracting as multiple attempts are often needed to make the call. I've since turned off the lane watch camera to prevent it from disrupting outbound calls.

On a Sunday morning, I started my car in a driveway - turned on the heater and allowed the car to warm up. When I began to back out of the driveway there was a bunch of thick smoke coming from the hood of the car. Then, I heard a loud pop sound and turned off the engine and quickly jumped out of the car. A mechanic looked at my car and determined that the water pump froze which caused the alternator belt to break. The next day, once my car was towed to the dealership, the determination was confirmed by the service department at the dealership. But, as to this day - I don't know why it happened. Do I have a lemon or will this happen again" could this happen while I'm driving causing a horrible accident" after all, this car only had 18,571 miles on it and I bought it new on March 9, 2014. I am very concerned because of the unknown future safety risk.

My car rolls down my driveway about 3 feet before it stops, my driveway is about 15 degrees, no rain, no snow, called the dealer and they said this was normal, I tend to think its very dangerous. This has happened many times in all weather conditions and the car was stationart and in park when this happened, I did my own test on this situation and it was very repeatable.

I was driving down the highway on a Tuesday morning around 6:45am and I heard a loud bang. Pulled back my sun visor for sunroof and saw that my sunroof was shattered. Closed visor just in case it wanted to break. Then all off a sudden I heard a loud crash and my visor started flapping. Road to work holding visor with one hand and driving with the other scared the visor was going to fly open. Got to work and looked at sun roof and it was a big hole in my sunroof. 75% of my sunroof was missing or gone.

Sunroof blew out with a loud noise, going 45 mph, sunny and dry road, daylight, no trucks anywhere near my car, no over passes in that area, bushes and trees on the side of the road, no people in sight and lucky for me the roof shade was closed. MA 10/5

The forward collision warning system has not worked during the time I have owned the vehicle. I have attempted on several occasions to simulate a condition in which the fcw should alert, with no success. I have taken the vehicle to the selling dealer four times. On two of the visits the fcw only worked once after testing four or more times.the fcw notification was too close for safely taking action. There was no change in the warning distance when changing the settings- long, normal, short. On the two other occasions the fcw did not work at all. Dealer advised it was to dangerous to ride along on test drives. Honda America would not furnish expected stopping distances to determine if fcw was working properly because there was too many variables and this information was private company information. This is an important safety devise and should work properly. Honda America refused my request to send to an employe to test drive. Updated 9/28/15

Upon trying to accelerate, the engine hesitated then stalled. Upon restarting and attempting to accelerate, the engine surged forward. Driving on the freeway the engine lost power momentarily then reengaged. The a.C./climate control is again not functioning properly, and the hands-free phone function disconnected multiple times. The car was taken the car to a Honda dealership approximately one week ago to have the air conditioning defect repairs completed. At that time they were unable to repair the trunk lid that has been falling down since I took possession of the vehicle in July 2014. The trunk lid falls at will.

The vehicle is able to be turned off with out putting in park. It is an automatic with push button start. When stopping at an arrived location you are able to push the button to turn off your vehicle with out putting it in park which then disengages the gears. If you happen to forget to put it in park and shut the car off in drive when you get out, the vehicle will roll away. Any other push button start vehicle I have used would not allow you to shut the engine down until it was placed in park. Roll away issues should and could be easily fixed.

This is a nightmare. Honda Accord 2014.last night my windows and sunroof automatically opened; there have been other random electrical problems, see below. The opening of the windows occurred during a rain storm and my brand new Honda is filled with water. The dash is blank and the phob key radio searching light is not blinking; so there was a short that caused this to happen. I will never buy a Honda again. If you are having any of the problems listed below, pay attention to them because I kept thinking they were just random little issues but they were precursors to this very big issue. My car is totaled!!! pay attention to the small stuff and save your life and get rid of your car. My trunk randomly opened, parked and driving. My tire pressure light is always on, even after being reset and tires checked. I'd get in my car and find the sunroof partially opened over night. There is a weird rattle in my car in the front area, sounds like its in the dash board, but could never isolate it.

While driving my new Honda, I noticed an odor similar to a gas smell, sort of like a Pilot on with no flame when the heat is on, the odor comes and goes. The odor is so bad at times that it upsets my stomach. I took the vehicle in to Honda to have it checked in November of 2014, and, they were unable to duplicate the problem. After leaving the dealership, the odor arrived for a minimal amount of time and then dissipated. However, the problem does still occur.

The trunk fell on my head and my grandmothers head. It did not hurt when it fell on my head but my grandmother was in pain when it fell on hers. I live on a sloped driveway, so any time I open my trunk it doesn't stay open and falls right down. It stayed open a few times, but would then randomly come falling down. I can┐┐T unload my groceries properly, I can┐┐T load my trunk up properly, it┐'s very disturbing. Also, I took it to two Honda dealerships and they said ┐┐it was fine┐Ł and ┐┐nothing was wrong.┐Ł one even suggested I used a broom to keep the trunk open (which is absurd because it┐'s a brand new 2014 Honda Accord. But when I spoke to the car repair shop about it, they said it was not normal and something was definitely wrong with the trunk.
