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.

antifreeze leak from thermostat housings assemby

Engine Overhead due to antifreeze leak on the thermostat housing. Engine had to be replaced.

This thermostat housing is made of plastic/fiberglass, water/antifreeze pressure runs through it causes wear to it and makes holes, hard to detect when the car is not running. Once the cooling system is hot, the antifreeze just drains causing your engine to overhead. Honda should have a recall on this!
