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. Notes: Honda dropped the "Accord" prefix for the 2012 model year. The new name is now just Crosstour.

Passenger side harsh vibrations - mostly on any road going above 30mph under acceleration the and harsh vibration is felt through out the passenger side front side of the car. After digging online and wasting several hours and countless days at mechanics the outcome is a bad passenger side front axle (driveshaft) called several dealers - local junk yards - plenty of auto part stores and nothing was available. Decided to call America Honda just to find out that the axle for the Crosstour is on a nationwide back order. Go figure. The internet is filled with Crosstour owners complaining of the same issue and asking for advice. Yet this issue is not a recall. This needs to be a recall. When I first got the car from Honda the vibration was small over 2 years it has got to the point of dangerous to drive. Last night I had to tow the car home due to the crazy amount of vibration when under acceleration. --- have a scheduled appointment with a local Honda dealer -- to see what the manager thinks my next step should be. With out breaking my pockets. Will post a update in a week or so. Contact your local dealers and call american Honda and let them know the issues the more callers the quicker we get this factory issue taken care of. No wonder this car was discontinued. They realized their mistake once production was started.

On 11/23/15 I bought my 2012 Honda Crosstour to my mechanic after feeling a shimmy in the front end. Wanted to make sure car was not out of alignment. After checking all the normal check points (ie.. tires, wheel balance, motor and transmission mount), did a check on both right and left axles. Mechanic stated the fluttering is due a manufacture defect in the driver side axle. Honda was told me that the part (44306-TP6-305) is on national back order and there was no eta. It is 8/8/16 still waiting for axle. I have opened a case ticket again with Honda but have been told the same thing. I find it difficult to believe that this part in on national back-order for over a year and that there is no recall. The car has gotten worse and now IżM unable to drive my car since due to this dangerous issue. This would be the second axle that IżM replacing.
