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.

2006 Honda Element. Consumer states problem with vehicle transmission the consumer stated he is submitting a complaint against Honda, because they did not provide a reasonable explanation as to why the transmission problem was not caused by the same module software described in recall 11V395000. In November 2009, the consumer took the vehicle to the dealer to check a rattle in the passenger side front tire. The dealer found a problem with the transmission carrier bearing and quoted a price of $3,300. After complaining, Honda agreed to replace the transmission, but the consumer had to pay the labor. The consumer contacted Honda in October 2011 because he did not receive a recall letter. Honda stated his VIN was not included in the recall. The consumer is now concerned that his vehicle has the problem as stated in the recall.
