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.

Driver's seatbelt does not retract correctly when I take it off. Hangs extremely loose into door well and has to be slowly and manually retracted into upper retraction unit. I am not very comfortable or sure it is operating correctly in the case of an accident. Dealer (kuhn Honda in tampa, fl) says there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. But if there was nothing wrong with it, why does it not retract and hang so loosely in the doorway? no other car I have ever driven, has had a seatbelt so very loose. I have spoken to american Honda, and they do not want to admit there is anything wrong with the car, and to make things worse, the car is under warranty.
