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.

Rear view camera is totally useless in situations where there is a mix of bright sunlight and shade conditions. The dynamic range of the camera isn't large enough to provide a clear picture of what is behind you. You get a blown out picture with no detail in the sunlit areas and blacks in the shade areas. I've had other cars with backup camera systems and this is the worst excuse for one I've ever seen.

There appears to be a problem with distorted glass being used in the rear windows of 2016 Honda Accord. Looking through the rear window of my Accord sport, vehicles and especially lane markings appear out of Focus and wavy. The problem is even worse in rainy conditions. This makes it difficult to determine the proximity of vehicles behind me, especially in heavy traffic conditions. Honda's district service manager acknowledged the problem without even asking to see my car. He called it "characteristic" of the Accord and claimed they all have varying levels of distortion. However, Honda refused to offer a replacement window.

The rear window is distorted which prevents a clear and accurate view of all objects behind the vehicle. This distortion affects the entire back window and it causes the objects viewed through the window to be wavy and distorted. Its effects are magnified in wet weather and at night. The distortion prevents the operator from accurately judging the size, speed and distance of the vehicles traveling behind the vehicle. The distortion occurs when the vehicle is moving and stationary.

2016 Honda Accord ex - 100 miles driven. The partition/split in the driver side rear view mirror distorts the view which makes it very hard to see approaching vehicles. The mirror is not safe and should be replaced asap with a regular mirror. Not sure how Honda's engineers could develop such a dangerous mirror.

Partitioned side view mirrors on my sport model makes me more confused than ever. It defeats the purpose of these mirrors. Honda you make things better, how in the world you thought it makes side viewing easier/clearer. This is classic example of "improvement for the worse". also, Honda used a cheap rearview mirror. Really did not expect this from Honda.

Steering wheel occludes the speedometer. Analog speedometer is in the middle of the dashboard and very large. Depending on the position of the steering wheel you loose at least 25 mph range (either on the low or high end of the spectrum). There is no digital readout which would be a simple fix to this issue as the low center part of the speedometer "ring" is always visible. Also, the driver's seat has a built in arch that does not fit ever body. It is not adjustable and (depending on height) pokes you in the mid-low back and doesn't let the upper back get support or relax into the seat. Result is very tight and spasmed back muscles. This gets worse over time.

The distortion prevents the operator from accurately judging the size, speed and distance of the vehicles traveling behind the vehicle. The distortion occurs when the vehicle is moving and stationary. I inspected several similar Accord at the dealer and they had the same distorted rear window. The service manager at the dealer acknolwedged the distortion, but claimed it couldn't be fixed.

The ┐driver's side expanded view┐ mirror is confusing to look at and not safe. A solution would be to replace this mirror with a regular mirror the driver can adjust. The camera view for the passenger mirror should have an option to turn it off. Night driving is difficult because of the vehicle lights. Otherwise this is a great car!
