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 2015 Honda Accord hybrid. While driving at 65 mph, the vehicle inadvertently entered fail safe mode, which caused the engine to stall and the vehicle to enter battery mode. The contact was able to coast onto the road shoulder and shut off the engine. The vehicle was towed to the dealer. The dealer test drove the vehicle, but the failure was unable to be duplicated. The dealer updated the software patch; however, the failure was not corrected. The contact was unable to start the engine. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 8,000.

While driving my Honda Accord 2015 on interstate 75 in the left lane, the dashboard displayed a warning that there was a power system failure, the engine light came on. The vehicle immediately lost all power. The dashboard display was still lit and the radio continued to play. There was no resistance with the gas pedal and the car could only coast. I checked traffic and changed lanes to the far right emergency pull off. I turned off the car and then restarted it and the power system failure warning was gone but then a brake system warning came on. The car did travel foward with gas pedal and the brake seemed to work so I stayed in emergency lane and proceeded to closet exit off I75. I went to auto zone but they could not assist me. When the car was restarted all the warnings were clear. I took it the a Honda dealer and ask for a diagnostic. Honda service person said that if I was driving with both feet (one on gas and one on brake) that loss of power. I was not driving with both feet, so I asked him to run a diagnostics so I felt safe enough to drive home. The diagnostics revealed that the computer needed an update that was performed by service. I read the paperwork on the diagnositcs and there was a statement that described my incident completely with sudden loss of power. My car is not on a recall list. Honda seemed to know exactly what to fix, but I was never notified that my car needed an update resulting in power system failure. Why was this information not communicated to the owners of these cars? for a brand new car to be able to display all kinds of information (ie, oil life, range of miles, time for service) why can not the car display that its computer needs an update and to take in for service? there was no injury thankfully, but easily this could have happen, I was just lucky that I was able to coast over to the emergency lane and was not going uphill.

I was commuting to work, driving on a major, high-traffic highway in the high-occupancy vehicle lane, when warning lights came on, saying there was a power system problem, a brake system problem, and some problem with elevated temperature that meant power was being reduced. I put on my flasher, hoping to make my way across three lanes of heavy traffic to pull off on the right shoulder. But I had no power at all. Luckily, there was a shoulder to the left where I could pull off. (despite the warning, the brakes seemed okay.) this was an extremely dangerous situation, and it was pure luck that no one was injured or even killed. The car is only 4 months old. I had it towed to the dealer. They told me this was "a common problem" with the Accord hybrid and that Honda had issued a software fix that should solve this problem. If this is true, there needs to be a recall so owners will become aware of this problem and can get it fixed rather than waiting until power failures and accidents occur.

The contact owns a 2015 Honda Accord hybrid. While driving approximately 78 mph, the warning message for the power failure, brake failure, overheated powering down displayed on the instrument panel. In addition, the check engine light illuminated. The vehicle decelerated and was merged to the side of the road. The vehicle was towed to the dealer. The technician diagnosed that a software update was needed and caused conflict between hybrid voltage and engine voltage. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the issue. The approximate failure mileage was 2,000.

I was traveling N/B on I-95 in the laurel, md area when the dash board displayed warnings that the car was over heating, braking system problem, and reducing power. The vehicle began to decelerate rapidly. I felt the imminent danger of having to exit the highway with tractor trailers driving by with speeds in excess 75mph, as my car was slowing down. I sincerely feel that a guardian angel was looking over me, allowing me find a break in traffic and exit the roadway. Its frightening to think of the outcome if I were unable to exit this highway safely. This 2015 Honda Accord hybrid was purchased in may of 2015. This incident occurred on the first extended road trip on the highway. I will not jeopardized my life, or the safety of my family by operating this new vehicle ever again. Honda corporation needs to rectify this situation before people lose their lives unnecessarily. A new car that shuts down on the highway, operating at highway speeds is absolutely unacceptable anytime. The defective part number is 1K100-5K1-A03, which I was told was on a national back order, and were unable to tell me when this part would arrive. Updated 10/06/15

This is the second time that my car has had problems at 60 to 70 mph. It happens when coasting not braking. The high temperature warning for the brakes comes on and the engine shuts down. The car will coast and brake but there is no power. It takes 5 minutes before you can turn the car off and reset. Otherwise the car is locked out and will not function. Today I was on I75 going 70 mph with trucks all around. This is a safety issue. My local dealer has been responsive but the first time they ran the codes etc the national Honda folks had never heard of this. This is the second time with the same issue. First was at about 2500 miles.
