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.

Passenger window got stuck about a week ago and delayed in rolling back up. Once it rolled up I set the window lock button so it wouldn't accidentally happen again while having wet weather. Yesterday, first sunny day, had rolled driver and front passenger windows down. Parked and rolled up windows. When got back into car 10 minutes later, noticed bad smell and yellow smoke coming from main window control panel on door before even turning the ignition on. Had to pull the fuse for the windows to stop it from smoking. This is the second time this has happened since I bought it off the lot. Replaced part on May 21, 2011 and paid out of pocket. Again Honda is asking me to pay for inspecting and replacing of this problem. I should not have to pay for this! I return tomorrow night to pick up my car.

Update from Jan 2, 2016: MAIN POWER WINDOW SWITCH ELECTRICAL BURNING -

PASSENGER WINDOW GOT STUCK ABOUT A WEEK AGO AND DELAYED IN ROLLING BACK UP. ONCE IT ROLLED UP I SET THE WINDOW LOCK BUTTON SO IT WOULDN'T ACCIDENTALLY HAPPEN AGAIN WHILE HAVING WET WEATHER. YESTERDAY, 1ST SUNNY DAY, HAD ROLLED DRIVER AND FRONT PASSENGER WINDOWS DOWN. PARKED AND ROLLED UP WINDOWS. WHEN GOT BACK INTO CAR 10 MINUTES LATER, NOTICED BAD SMELL AND YELLOW SMOKE COMING FROM MAIN WINDOW CONTROL PANEL ON DOOR BEFORE EVEN TURNING THE IGNITION ON. HAD TO PULL THE FUSE FOR THE WINDOWS TO STOP IT FROM SMOKING. THIS IS THE SECOND TIME THIS HAS HAPPENED SINCE I BOUGHT IT OFF THE LOT. REPLACED PART ON MAY 21, 2011 AND PAID OUT OF POCKET. AGAIN HONDA IS ASKING ME TO PAY FOR INSPECTING AND REPLACING OF THIS PROBLEM. I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR THIS! I RETURN TOMORROW NIGHT TO PICK UP MY CAR.

The Honda dealer hadn't replaced the main power window switch when I picked up my car the other day. So they did it then...in 20 minutes or less they were done. Now one of my buttons sticks and I'm not convinced its insulated well or even replaced carefully to where it won't spark up again soon. It cost me 425.00 to have it replaced again.

And looking at the recall on this in 2012, the investigation went on in 2011 around the time I had this happen the first time. My vin should have been included in this report since it would have been on file with Honda. They obviously hadn't included my case in their reports. Not cool.
