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.

Prior to having an accident I thought Honda�s were a half way decent car. Not any more!! This was my first accident where I broadsided a car with my front end. The insurance company totaled out my car due to all the damage to my front end. After contacting Honda Corporation several times they put me in touch with their field representatives. The only thing I wanted to know was why my airbag Did NOT deploy. The answer they gave me was my seat belt sensor told my airbag sensor it did not need to deploy and I had no case against them. I am not sure I will ever know the honest answers but knowing this certainly does not make me feel any safer. Infact all I feel is they kinda gave me the run around and DO NOT stand behind what they make. I will never buy another Honda or recommend anyone else does. I am definitely going to buy a Chevrolet for the rest of my life!! This is a true story. I apologize for having to air my incident in this manor but I felt the public should be aware of this. Good luck if you own a Honda!!
