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.

Driving in neighborhood at 20-25 mph, going down small hill, vehicle suddenly accelerated to about 40 mph. Applied brakes, with no result. Continued up gradual incline and was able to stop. After a couple of minutes, determined that brakes were again responding, continued slowly to destination (two or three blocks). Honda arranged tow to dealer. Dealer has not been able to "duplicate customer concern, " and states that the vehicle is ready for us to pick up. Do not want to drive this brand new car again.

Was driving on highway at 65 mph with cruise control on when vehicle suddenly accelerated. Moved hands and feet to make sure I was not causing it, then pressed cancel button on cruise to stop it. By this time I was going 80 mph. Luckily no cars were in front of me or could have had an accident. Took vehicle to dealer and they could not find an error code or replicate problem. Going on vacation for a week and will be using cruise again. Will pay extra attention to this problem while on highway. Have copy of dealer work order, but it is not available for upload. Will retain in case you need to contact at a later date.
