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.

Takata recall the airbag warning light intermittently comes on and stays on when the car is started. It continues to remain illuminated somedays and then not at all on others. However, our concern is that the airbags will deploy in an accident and that the metal chards they are known to explode is worse than no airbag! the intermittent nature of the problem means it can't be diagnosed and repaired. Also, the Accord hybrid model is not included in the takata recall, despite the fact that it apparently has the very same takata airbag system..nor was it a part of the ima lawsuit that was the same system that the civic has a lawsuit over. Just because of the low number of this model being sold, owners shouldn't be ignored and not served as the mass number of other model owners, who didn't buy the discontinued problem model that only a small number of us got stuck with. Like at 91,000 I need a ima battery replacement just as I knew there was problems a long time before the dash icon illuminated, but Honda won't acknowledge until then. Convenient to mask battery problems with a software update which serves the purpose to pretty much just delay and suppress the issue until the 10 yr/100,000M warranty is over. It is known to make mileage far worse but hey-draws out being able to prove its the battery! works for them-( Honda) whats worse is when you bought the junk model for over the kbb value, have paid in full and only bought 2yrs ago- so that now you need a car all over again and cant sell this when it gets poor gas mileage and needs 4000 in repairs. Honda should Focus on us before their advertising random financial gifts of awards to anyone! try giving it back to those who gave you that money first...
