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.

Air pressure on my front passenger tire has been low since a month into the purchase of this car. The alert only went off once, but when I got the tires refilled, the tire still seemed flat. I just let it be because no further alerts came on. But I was in an accident and slipped on snow the other day and hit a curb, which deployed my airbags. I do not think that if this tire was defective I would have gotten into this accident. I was going around 10mph, as I was pulling out of a parking lot.

I received a notice about a recall for my vehicle and was urged to act promptly in getting it fixed. I was told in the letter to call my Honda dealership so they could order replacement parts and then schedule to drop off my car for them to be able to install the replacement parts. I called duval Honda on cassat and was told by the service desk that they were not ordering parts until I brought the car by for an inspection first, but they could not inspect any car after 3pm. I find this extremely unsatisfactory since most of us that own these cars work for a living. The lady I spoke with called her manager and he confirmed that no, they were not inspecting cars for this recall after 3pm I called a different dealer in town and they are ordering the parts without seeing my car and I have scheduled to drop it off with them. You should know that not all dealerships are helping people with this problem!

While driving along at normal speeds, my vehicle alerted me that the airbag system needed to be checked. I immediately called the dealership where the vehicle was purchased and an appointment was made for me to bring the vehicle in for inspection. I took the vehicle in to the dealership and was told that they were unable to find anything wrong with the system. The SRS light was reset and I was advised to contact the dealership if the light came on again. I did not make it home before the light came on again. I again contacted the dealership and was advised that I would need to bring the vehicle in and leave it all day for them to be able to determine what is causing the light to come on.
