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.

March 19,2016 I was in a small parking lot. I started the car push gently on the accelerator and the car hit the first car on the driver side and the airbags deployed and the hood came up. It hit the passenger side and I applied the brake. It hit two other parked cars behind me and a curb and finally stopped.the car kept accelerating.fortunately the other cars were empty so I was the only one injured. Williamsburg, Virginia

Accord Plug-in Hybrid

  • 500 miles
The unusual event occurs when driving the 2014 Honda Accord plug-in at about 45-65 mph. Normally, accelerating the car requires using both the gas engine and battery (hv mode) to move the vehicle at this speed. But everyday for about a week now, while driving on the freeway, the car's gas engine suddenly and randomly revs consistently very high and also notably very loud. On 11/27/13, while driving southbound on the 5 fwy, after about a minute of the unusually high rev noise again, the car loses all power and movement from the gas engine. It was likely, only the battery was providing movement of the car because the battery meter had only 1 bar left (the car battery meter usually always has at least 2 bars during normal operation). I was able to pull over to the side shoulder lane, attempt to restart the vehicle and the car was still not able to accelerate normally. After another attempt to restart the vehicle, it finally starts to work normally again.
