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.

  • 66,000 miles
On my 2003 Honda at around 66,000 miles the air conditioning quit working. Although I hardly use A/C since I only have a short drive to work. I took the vehicle into a Honda dealer. It was reported that the A/C blew up and was contaminated throughout the system. I had to replace everything including lines. Although they claim this happens, im concerned since the A/C was rarely used. Clearly a defect in the A/C. ive owned other vehicles with only having to do regular maintenace on the A/C with no problems. This repair costed $2,611.70. I had an extended warrenty which did not help much either. I have been told or read other problems with the A/C in Honda.
