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.

The cushion material in the front seats is disintegrating. Each week there is more and more foam dust under each of the front seats on the door side. The front passenger seat is not used often as I am single---my mother does sit there(she weighs 110 lbs). I am the only driver of the car and at 137 lbs I don't understand how the seat was so poorly constructed that the foam, or whatever the seat is made of, is disintegrating on a weekly basis. I am concerned that this problem is compromising the seat cushion airbag. I am unsure of the exact start date because in the beginning I believed the dust to be just that or possible dirt/sand from shoes getting in and out of the car. After inquiring about the problem at local Honda dealership it was suggested that I contact Honda directly. I will be contacting them soon in an attempt to ask about this issue; however, I wanted to contact you as I consider this to be a safety concern. Could this potentially lead to the airbags inflating because of a lack of padding? no longer will the airbags be cushioned from any impacts/bumps/weight-- not as much material. Again, I am sure this could lead to a problem of safety if it compromises the cushion airbags. Thank you

The vehicles brakes are horrible, it the front rotors mostly, they deteriorate very quickly along with the high quality brake pads. I replaced the rotors at 70,000 and they are already getting damaged. There has been an unsettling vibration in the braking/steering system since we bought the car. I am convinced that Honda no longer makes quality vehicles and the sooner they stop making cars the better. At 25,000 miles we had the ac clutch start to slip on us while we were in about 120'F temps in bon our way to bullhead city. We arrived completely soaked in sweat and with the beginning stages of chapped lips from the hot air blowing from the ac. We had an air leak in the moon roof since we bought it, all Honda did was make us waste our time while the mickey moused the seal, on the way home from the dealers after they supposedly fixed it, it started making the whistle again after I opened and closed it. I had grease prints all over the head liner from that experience.the leather arm rest started bubbling and peeling about a year after the purchase, it looks horrible. I have had better used cars then this. I have nothing to say about Honda except if you value your life and your families life and value what you buy with your hard earned money. Then don't ever ever buy a Honda. They deserve to go out of business and be sued by every person that ever bought from them.

The headrest pushes forward much too far and is causing pain and tension on my wife's neck and back. Also there is no lumbar support on the passenger side and she is extremely uncomfortable in this car. When we contacted Honda we were told that there are no remedies to fix this. Because of this we would never buy a Honda again unless they changed these issues. We just bough this one and are very unhappy with the lack of comfort and the inability to even purchase an alternate headrest or to be able to choose a seat with more back support. The headrest and seat should be adjustable to fit the consumer's stature and comfort level.
