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.

My 07 Honda Fit is leaking water. The carpet is wet and moldy, especially under the rear seats. This causes my windows to have condensation on them and impairs my view through the windows since they are foggy from October to March with the colder weather.. the spare tire area has water sitting in it eventhough I take the plug out to drain. The car is devalued due to the stink and those with health problems don't want to ride in it. Due to the mold. The car has started rusting where wetness pools, under the seat. And if it isn't taken care of soon, the wet inside of the door panels will not only rust prematurely but compromise my rear electrical, such as my speakers and whatever else goes through the doors. I need the leak fixed, the carpet replaced and the door panels to be drained.

Started noticing that water was getting into the back floor board of the vehicle. Upon investigation noticed considerable amounts of water under the spare tire. I have noticed the mold growing in the carpet and have cleaned this up twice. The local Honda dealer (johnson city Honda) says they have never heard of this problem in the past. This occurs each time the vehicle is driven in the rain. Nothing has been done by the local dealer.

2007 Honda Fit leaking water into spare tire well and under passenger seat carpeting. Had it in during first year of ownership - could not find it. Had it in again in 2009 - they couldn't find it. Had it in July 13th, of this year, because smell was so bad - lifted up rear passenger seat to a soaked carpet and wet spare tire well. This time they found it, attempted two fixes so far. Brought in today, July 19, - will be attempting 3rd fix. Am very concerned about the mold smell - they cleaned up the white mold during the first fix - so visual evidence is gone. I have severe allergies and take medications every day, year round. The dealership and mechanics say this is a defect from the factory. They have been speaking with Honda engineers on how to fix - but so far unsuccessful. I bought this new, as a retirement gift to myself. Cashed in an ira. I have driven Honda for over 25 years and have never had a problem like this. I will be contacting Honda to let them know I have filed this.

My 2007 Honda Fit has defective door seals in at least the front two doors and the trunk leading to black mold and resulting health concerns. When the car is parked on any kind if incline and it rains, water enters the car via the defective door seals and soaks into the rear carpets causing extensive mold damage to the carpets and seals. Water also fills the rear spare tire well. This occurs every time the car is parked in the rain. I have personally experienced this with my 2007 Honda Fit. This leak could cause breathing difficulties and other physical side effects due to black mold. Despite my and others efforts to bring this to the attention of Honda usa, they have ignored all attempts and will not offer me any assistance. I have wasted a considerable amount of money trying to remedy this issue through Honda. A recall needs to be issued for this leak issue. It would be the fourth issued for this car, and two of the previous recalls are linked to water leaks or water damage. There is clearly a serious related defect in manufacturing with the first five years of this model's lifespan.

I have personally experienced this with my 2007 Honda Fit, and there are many other Honda Fit owners reporting the same issue either in person or online. In the us Honda do not admit it is an issue, despite various Honda dealers identifying the problem. In europe and Japan Honda have attempted remedy with the Honda jazz - virtually the same car. This leak has caused me breathing difficulties and other physical side effects. It has reduced the value of my vehicle and is a danger to my pregnant wife and my unborn child. Despite my and others efforts to bring this to the attention of Honda usa, they have ignored all attempts and will not offer me any assistance.

I own a 2007 Honda Fit, sport model- that was involved in an accident. I was driving my car on the highway in stop and go traffic. There was a late model Toyota Tundra pickup truck infront of my car and it came to a sudden stop. I couldn't stop quick enough- I was traveling at low speed must be under 15mph. My car hit the bumper of the pick up truck infront of me and the hood, lights and entire "top" front end sustained about "$7000" worth of damage. But none of the airbags deployed at all. Lots of lights on the gauge cluster came on and went off but the airbags did not deploy. The Tundra only sustained a scratch on the rear bumper. After a tear down by the body shop it was determined that the sensors were installed at the sides at the front end of the frame rail. This is a very low position on this car since its already low to the ground. I believe the airbag sensors are too low on these cars by poor and irresponsible design by Honda. Had these sensors been placed at a higher elevation then the airbags would have gone off and the injuries would have been even minor. This design decision seems like it was developed to satisfy the frontal crash tests conducted by the insurance institute for highway safety. During those tests the cars are evaluated for crashes to a solid object anchored to the ground. The airbags would not deploy in a crash scenario with any vehicle that would not be a compact car. I was lucky because there was no loss of life but the same accident at a higher speed would have resulted in no airbag deployment and certain loss of life. The car is currently being repaired at a body shop in lorton va. I extend you the opportunity to come and study the car if you care to do so... thanks so much shazad buksh
