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.

On several occasions, the SRS light has come on with code 4-1 which was diagnosed by to be the right front seatbelt tensioner failure. Each time the dealer replaced the right front seatbelt assembly. The first several times, Honda covered the cost under its lifetime seatbelt warranty. The last time this occurred, Honda refused to cover under warranty after the dealer replace the seatbelt assembly. According to the dealer, this is a common problem and Honda issued notice to dealers saying that they should not honor Honda's lifetime seatbelt warranty. I opened a case with Honda (N012015-04-0301347) and Honda refused to honor its warranty and refused to provide any explanation for why the replacement of a defective seat belt assembly is not covered under its lifetime warranty on seatbelts.
