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.

All of these issues have presented themselves while the car was on and in motion. Dear Honda: Recall the airbags asap!! #1 sign of issue @ 45 miles: Passenger airbag light/sensor would blink on-off intermittently (all the time) only while driving. Back driver window works intermittently. #2 @ 15000 miles: Steering wheel controls intermittently worked backwards (volume up would turn down & vice versa.) it wasn't frequently and always eventually started working correctly. #3 @ 40000 miles: Airbag warning light came on stating "check airbags" it goes off every once in a while but is on 90% of the time. (not under warranty, the dealer wants $150 just to look. Having the car less 2yrs. And the airbag having issues since 45 miles and never being in an accident, I feel this should be something I should not have to pay for and can't afford anyway. Huge safety concern. #3 @ 60000 miles: My cruise control does not work. It won't even turn on. #4 @ 64000 miles: The horn does not work most of the time. All these issues and I've only had the car 2.5 yrs. The cruise and volume controls not working is annoying but the horn and airbag is a huge risky issues. I'm not the first to complain. Honda is aware there is issues with the airbags in these models and still has not issued a recall" shame on you Honda! why wait? people are going to die because of the faulty airbags! how many before you make it right?"!!

I was driving 5 minutes away from my home around a 30 mile an hour gradual bend. I suddenly had no power steering losing control momentarily, I slowed down immediately trying to regain control of the vehicle while just missing going into the woods and almost creating an accident behind me. The check power steering assembly lights were flashing on the information board.this is extremely dangerous and wife and daughter drive the car often and I'm not too sure the outcome would have been as good as mine and this truly scares me.this is my 6th Honda, I purchase all my car is new, and I've never have a problem like this before!
