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.

OK here goes. Bought a 2004 CRV. My first Honda. I bought a Honda because I had always heard they were good cars. Took it in for the routine 15,000 mile checkup to the dealer. Picked up the car and was told everything was OK. At 17,000 miles (actually I think it was less), the brakes failed. Took it to the dealer. The dealer said the brakes were completely gone and needed to be replaced (at my expense.) I had the brakes replaced, but was EXTREMELY pissed off. I've driven for 30+years and owned four cars, and have never had to have the brakes replaced at 17,000 miles. In all the rest of the cars I've owned, I've usually had to have the brakes redone at about 50,000 - 60,000 miles. I asked the mechanics at the dealer how this happened. I was given the royal runaround, which pisses me off so much I won't go there. When I protested, the manager checked the15,000 mile checkup records and said that well, the brakes were already at 52%. Wait --STOP THE PRESSES! First off, the brakes were already half gone at 15,000 miles, which is obscene. Second, nobody said anything then. Third, the dealer was supremely unresponsive.

So, I have never taken my car back to that dealer, and I will never buy another Honda as long as I live. The 1972 Bonneville Pontiac with 172,000 miles on it was a better car.
