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.

Sun visor has failed, split open. Very annoying. It's always in the down position, I don't need it at night. If I try to put it all the way forward, it just goes back down.I have read about class action lawsuit on years 2006-2009 but seems like others have failed as well.

My car horn to honk is not working. I replaced the fuse and it won't work. This is very dangerous!! I can't warn cars that are about to crash into me that I'm there. I can't prevent accidents without honking. Some cars don't see me in there blind spots. I feel like if someone crashes into me Honda will be part at fault bc the horn doesn't work. I received a recall letter from Honda saying the air bags are being recalled. I think the horn situation should be investigated bc the horn and the airbag are located in the same place. My horn malfunction before but it had gotten fixed by itself.

The paint on the roof of the car and on the trunk is peeling and fading. It started out as dull looking paint and then turned into gray spots.

Both sunvisors on my Civic have split and will fall down in front of me and block my view of the road at any time. This is frustrating and dangerous.

We have replaced the sun visor in the second year that we had the car. Our car is now six years old and it has to be replaced again! my son has a 2002 Honda and has never had to replace them. It makes me feel the car is made very cheaply!

There is a water leak in the interior of the car. Anytime that it rains, water leaks through the top section of the driver's side curtain airbag. We have had continued rain for the past two days and it has dripped down while sitting parked all night. The whole interior in seat are soaked wet. There was no previous damage to the top of the car.

Vehicle started fine in the mornings but, when shifted into reverse, there was a loud, humming noise. I have owned several vehicles before but have never encountered this noise before. I have been advised that the engine mount needed to be changed and that this is a common problem. Honda should address this as there seems to be a design issue.

The sun visor on the driver's side won't stay up, keeps coming down while I'm driving making visibility poor...visor came apart at the seam, making it impossible for the visor to stay up against the roof and out of the driver's line of vision...a recall for this same problem was issued for model years up to 2009...the same visor is on the 2010 models, why weren't they involved in the recall also? the passenger side is also looking like it's going to have the same issue

Driver's side sun visor fell down while driving and won't stay up. The seam is split and the visor just hangs making it difficult to see. Moving or stationary makes no difference, it won't stay up in either situation. I have to physically hold it up while I drive.

Driver side and passenger side sun visors are in the down position and have lost their mechanical ability to be placed in its resting position against the headliner. The driver side sun visor in its down position is a safety hazard for the driver because visibility is limited. With limited visibility while driving, this poses a serious danger for the driver while operating the motor vehicle.
