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.

I completely lost brakes in Atlantic city a few months ago, nearly crashed the car , Honda claims that the vehicle was tampered with, when i can assure it was not, so it was not covered under warranty. This car has had nothing but problems and I didn't feel like it was safe to drive. I sold it and now drive a beautiful Chrysler 300c, nice car. Anyway i will never buy a Honda again , they really aren't reliable, and in my precept are dangerous.

Our brakes keep locking up and the car won't stop. The first time I thought it was the snow maybe although I was only traveling about 5 mph on plowed pavement. The next time I was rolling to a stop at a couple miles an hr an the brakes lost power completely. This car has been a nightmare. It smells like something's burning and since day one we've not gotten more than 23 miles to the gallon although we pamper it. I plan to take it to the dealer on Monday.
