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.

Honda replaced their satellite radio system in the new Accord plug-in hybrid with hondalink aha radio. Beginning the day I bought the car, hondalink aha radio has been unreliable and so distracting to the driver that I consider it a danger. Since it is designed to work through the owner's cell phone, it requires constant monitoring using both the cell phone and the touch screen and most often will not function. Sometimes after driving without it working it will come on suddenly alarming the driver. It is the most distracting, dangerous, and unreliable technology I have ever experienced. As long as it is in the car it is a danger to the driver and others. Honda should be required to recall these vehicles and install satellite radio that works simply by turning it on. Although I have been to the dealer several times and spent hours on the phone with Honda technical, they have not been able to fix the problem and maintain that there is nothing they can do to resolve it.

Accord Plug-in Hybrid 4-cyl

  • 2,000 miles
Vehicle suddenly lost power on the highway, unable to exceed approximately 30-40mph on electric only mode. Hybrid mode or regenerative hybrid modes were unable to successfully engage to power the vehicle. Electric only power supply was soon depleted & the vehicle was unable to start the gasoline engine and re-enter normal hybrid powered mode. Vehicle completely lost power and required a tow. As of 01/09/2014 the vehicle is still at an authorized Honda dealer service department awaiting repair with no current known diagnosis provided to me. The authorized Honda dealer service department is in contact with Honda corporate technical attempting to troubleshoot and identify the cause of the loss of power and locomotion.
