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.

  • 40,000 miles

Purchased car with low mileage two years ago, I have put personally on vehicle 30,000 miles, exhaust pipe rusted through and fell off, was told by dealer that it is because I did not drive vehicle enough! Honda tells me it is covered under extended warranty, dealer tells me no. To make matters worse you have to purchase the pipe from the dealer!
