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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Car was purchased brand new from dealership in fort smith, ar. Upon inspection 10 days after purchase. (miles: 502) vehicle undercarriage and suspension had significant rust and oxidization damage. In this region of the United States- rust is very uncommon if not ever present, much less, on a brand new vehicle. After numerous attempts to work with american Honda and the local dealership, they claim to have exhausted all efforts and have done all "repairs" they intend to do. The work done was only surface removal and since then, a rear oil leak has developed and the back seat door panels have separated from the body of the vehicle. Let it be known that I have been without a vehicle since the beginning of this process, June 3, 2016. This is unacceptable and unbelievable that a brand new vehicle has this extent of rust damage. I am a mechanic with over 40 years of experience and have never seen this type of damage on a vehicle, let alone a new purchase. If I would have known this would even be an issue, I would have inspected the vehicle before purchase. Because of it being a new vehicle, who would have expected this problem from a trusted vehicle brand such as Honda?! I have made sure to document this thoroughly and have more than 70 photos for your review. Please contact me anytime for those or any additional documentation you might need.

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.
