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.

Takata recall hello, after taking my vehicle for the takata recall for the third time on 9/3. the SRS sensor light came on and it is still on. Honda refuses to take a look at the vehicle without charging me first. My main concern is how do I know if the airbags are fully functional after Honda fixed the recall and now the SRS light is on. Honda also refuses to test the vehicle to make sure airbags and seat belts are fully functional.

Driver's door lock has broken at around 83,000 miles. I was having to unlock and go through passenger's door. Now at 150,000 miles the passenger door lock has broken. Door locks should never break and now I face either climbing through the back of the car or leaving it unlocked, which is a huge safety issue.
