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.

Got into the car and saw a crack on the front windshield that is coming from the middle portion, under the molding left to right. (if sitting in car.) contacted Honda and still no response. Always we will call you back.

I just noticed I have a cracked windshield on my new 2008 Honda Element. I don't recall any debri or anything hitting my windshield but I noticed a crack? in my 37 years of driving I have had only 1 cracked windshield and in that case I saw and heard the rock hit my windshield back in 1995ish.
