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.

"takata recall" earlier in the spring our Honda CRV was part of the massive driver side air bag recall. Basically was told that if it deployed, it may kill us with tiny pieces of flying metal. We spent months dealing with Honda and rentals through them that we had to argue over and keep exchanging. Hours and hours of work that my husband took off so he could drive halfway across atlanta each time to deal with rentals and Honda. Finally got our car back early this summer. Yesterday I got a new recall notice from Honda. This time it's for our passenger side airbag. Basically the same thing, if it deploys it may kill you with metal fragments. This time when I called Honda to find out the deal I was told, "the part is on backorder. We will order it but we don't know when we will get it. Until we do we suggest that you avoid having a passenger sit in the front passenger seat." Seriously, this is what they said. Nope they won't help us with a rental, just don't sit in the front because if you get in a wreck the airbag that is supposed to keep you safe may kill you with flying metal fragments. For our family of 4, this "avoiding the passenger seat" is not an option. With 2 booster seats in the back there isn't space for an adult to sit, so basically they've rendered our main vehicle unusable. But refuse to help us in any way. I've made multiple calls to Honda headquarters and have "tickets" in place to request alternate travel assistance (rental) but was told that they are, "pretty backlogged with requests right now so I don't know when they will get back to you." Seriously.

Takata recall - I first received a recall letter from Honda regarding the airbag recall form 2008 CRV last winter. The letter said parts would not be available until summer, and they would notify me then as to replacing the airbags. I began calling two local dealers who said they did not have the parts, but would notify me when they do. Meanwhile, I have to keep driving the "unsafe" vehicle. I continue to call them, they do have my information on file, and I make them verify that by giving me the VIN number each time I call so I know I am in the queue. Meanwhile, today I received a letter from Honda saying it is important that I respond. Do I still own the vehicle" they have my VIN number. I would hope that when the dealer records it in the waiting list, the data would be uploaded to Honda's database. Apparently not, the number is on the letter. But that's just one of the many annoyances. My biggest issue is that I have a vehicle that they are telling me is very unsafe for me or a passenger, yet they expect me to continue using this vehicle until they decide to fix it.. I would think they have huge liability. In addition, a friend had the airbags replied in her civic last winter at the same dealer, diamond valley Honda in hemet, California. What is this" please look into this. In spite of Honda's pr efforts (and money spent), neither they nor the dealer display any true sense of urgency in protecting the safety of the owners. I have owned only Honda vehicles since 1980, and sorry to say this definitely taints my loyalty.
