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.

While making a left turn the engine stalled. I lost all power to the vehicle. Was able to coast to side and restart car. Took to dealer and they advised they are aware of this problem happening to others and have no fix at this time. Honda looking into it if this occurred on the expressway I could have been killed. Dealer response is not acceptable vehicle unsafe to drive.

My car stalled in the middle of the road. I couldn't start it and had to towed it down to dealer. I was lucky that it did not happened in the highway. I can not imagine what will be happen if it stalls again it the middle of the high where every one drives so close and high speed. I drive about 150 miles every workday for my job and mostly in the high way. I also travel at night. I am worried about my life and life of my family member. And I belief that it is a safety issue.I tried to talk to the companey and also wrote them a letter but it seems thery are not giving it any serious consideration for obvious economic reason. I hope you could help me. The dealer could not find anything to repair which makes it more difficult because whatever is the reason may be it is still there.
