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.

problem #2

Jul 242008


  • 6,035 miles
After a right turn, I attempted to return up to speed by depressing the accelerator pedal and the power train/ transmission failed to engage, I.e, the engine raced and the car coasted forward with speed declining. The transmission/power train resumed normal function after approx.5 to 6 seconds. Vehicle behind me heeded my warning blinkers and a collision was avoided due to his/her alertness.

problem #1

Fit 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,000 miles
Continuing problem with 2007 Honda Fit automatic transmission hesitation to down shift at 2-5 mph, such as rolling stops at yield signs. When you step down on accelerator transmission seems to get confused and does not allow acceleration at all for 2-3 seconds. It is okay if completely stopped, but not from a rolling stop. This is very dangerous, and has almost caused an accident several times. The Honda dealer acknowledged that this was a defect, but Honda technical support said the Fit models all do it, and there was nothing that could be done about it.
