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.

Note: This is the second frontal based crash listed on this site for a Honda 2011 crz perhaps the driver that was involved with the previous crash did not realize the brakes failed. At approximately 17:17 I noticed the vehicle in front of me was stopped in traffic I tried to apply my brakes and pushed the brakes and the car did not slow for at least 1 1/2 car length. In a panic I tried to press harder with but nothing happened the car never slowed. The crashed into the vehicle in front of me with the full force of forty-forty five mph and totally collapsed the engine into the drivers cab both of my knees were bleeding and swollen from the impact of the engine being in the drivers compartment. The police officer told someone that helped me out of the car it looked like I never pushed the brake pedal. How can I Honda charge a premium with results like this and expect people to come back. It is worse feeling in the world to realize you do not have any brakes and your safety equipment you paid a premium for fails to work. Honda has lost a customer for life and I should have listened to the Accord owners complaining about the recurring brake repairs.the air bag did not deploy until the vehicle was fully stopped and I hit my head on the drivers side window. Consumer reports was right this car doesn't deserve to be rated!

****revision to previous complaint**** I was recently involved in a frontal collision in this vehicle. I am fine, however, the seat belt did not hold me to the seat properly. As the impact happened the seat belt locked and held me midway, from the back of the seat to the steering wheel, and did not 'pretension' me properly (pull me back and hold me sung to the seat. Because of this, while the seat belt was holding me midway, the air bag came out at full force and the center of the airbag impacted me in the middle of my chest, more specifically my sternum. If I was going to come into contact with the airbag it should have been after the airbag was fully deployed, instead, the airbag deployed and impacted my chest.
