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.

2009 Honda Fit Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 232012

Fit 4-cyl

  • 42,883 miles


On the evening of March 23, 2012, at approximately 6:30 pm, I was driving my Fit on the pa. Turnpike. I suddenly heard a thud from under the engine, which sounded as though a stone had ricocheted off the road surface onto the underside of the chassis. I immediately noticed voluminous grey smoke issuing from the tailpipe. As I was less than one quarter mile from an exit, I took it and quickly pulled over, shut off the ignition, and jumped out. I noticed a large, growing puddle of oil directly beneath the engine. Prior to my shutting off the ignition, I at no time saw the low oil pressure indicator light up on the instrument panel. As it turns out, the oil plug had inexplicably blown out. Since I purchased my Honda Fit, it has been maintained impeccably, as recommended by the maintenance minder and the manufacturer.
