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.

Honda has been non responsive to NHTSA recall 14V-351. After receiving the recall notice which said the defect could kill or injure me I called the dealership to schedule the replacement of the airbag. Honda refused to schedule an appointment because the parts were back ordered. Since then they have never called or contacted me. Each week I call and they repeat the back order scenario and refuse to make an appointment for the recall. I have tried to contact Honda customer service. I have not been able to get through. I hang up after holding in excess of 30 minutes. It appears that they are delaying the recall. The dealer involved is dublin Honda, dublin, California.

At this time my car has a recall on its airbag. Recently I received a letter to call my local Honda dealer. In calling I was told that the car could not be fixed till December 10th and to call the day before to make sure the part was even available. This is unacceptable as it effects the safety of my entire family. I wish to know what can be done to rectify this matter.
