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.

It lurches for it will accel when you don't want it to. Has trouble to shift into another gear loud noises. Was driving down the highway and I turned on the cruise control an accelerated faster than when I program data entry of the RPM's up. Had to step on the brakes a couple times to get it to stop doing that almost hit two vehicles I do all the transmission fluid changes recommended and oil. These are great cars but these problems that need to be addressed.

I have had my hch 2005 at the dealership several times since I bought it in 2011. It has had the recall updates as they were received. My mil (check engine light) is on constant. I have replaced all 3 oxygen sensors and the catalytic converter even after having the recall done for the secondary and third oxygen sensors. The light will not go off. When taken to the dealer they said it was the oxygen sensors and wanted $1,100 to replace them. But they are new so I know that's not the problem. Now I have learned there was some kind of recall that they failed to inform me of that was supposed to update the ECM and keep the problem I have been trying to fix from happening. Also had the juddering issue and 5 months after the dealer fixed the problem it started again. They said that it had to be something else and the recall would not cover a second repair. So now I have a car that has a judder at takeoff and cannot be inspected because the check engine light is on. I cannot take it to have the newest recall fixed with the airbags. I have put over $500 in it to get the light off so it could pass the emissions test but still not off. And I think that Honda should have recalled all of these cars and junked them. I am a very upset consumer and feel that something should be done about all these issues. I will be submitting my repair costs labor and parts for reimbursement because I feel like Honda should have done a better job.
