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.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,982 miles


The contact owns a 2012 Honda Crosstour. The contact stated that while parked, he noticed a fire had erupted from the dashboard area. The fire department was not called because the failure had occurred overnight while the vehicle was parked and seemingly, had extinguished independently. The contact did not notice the failure until it had already occurred. The vehicle was towed to the dealer for diagnostic testing where the technician advised that there had been a failure with the wiring in the console. The exact cause of the fire was undetermined. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 22,982. Updated 03/12/13 updated 03/27/2013
