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.

When exiting a speed ramp off of the highway the RPM's speed up causing a horrible sound in the engine and the feeling that you may not be able to slow down in time to exit the ramp. Additionally, more than a numerous times the car is very unsteady going over 55mph if it encounters any type of "bump" in the highway upon merging into another lane it is unsteady and the whole car "jerks",(feels like it could rollover easily)you need to have a firm hold on the steering wheel or you could lose control. Glare on windshield at night presents a safety concern with night driving. The headrests are a hinder to being able to effectively see your blind spot and the car with its horrible steering control presents another area of concern, you will be in the other lane trying to look over your shoulder more than once!

I was driving on the interstate on a very cold morning, I was in the right lane, no one was even around me and all of a sudden I hear a load pop, I looked over & my passengers side, 'vent window' had shattered into a million pieces. It did stay in tact but Honda dealer says something must have hit it. I personally think the vent blowing the warm air on the cold window effected it. This may be a little window but it's not cheap to fix. I am wondering if there have been any other complaints regarding this...
