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.

Seats in Honda Fit 2010 are causing severe back problems to the point that I may need to have surgery. I am not prone to severe lower back problems but since purchasing this vehicle I have been to the doctor 3 times and seen a physiotherapist. The doctor has now made an appointment for me with a physatrist and if this doctor cannot resolve my problem, I will have to have back surgery.

Front seats moving slightly with hard cornering or breaking. Based on comments obtained on internet, checked the front seat rail bolts and found two of them to be loose (one each on both the front seats).

My brand new 2010 Honda Fit sport is breaking my neck! the design of the headrest does not allow me to sit in a comfortable position. Because of chronic back problems, I normally drive with the seat back in an almost vertical position. The tilt of the headrest forces my head forward. Within minutes, the pain in my neck and back becomes unbearable.

I purchased Honda Fit and drove it home to realize that I have to either drive without a head restraint and compromise my safety or not be able to drive for more than 20 minutes a day. The head rest pushes my head forward and strains my neck to the point that I either have to sit upright away from the seat or stretch my neck far out in pain. Either way it is not safe, whether in case of accident or generally for my health. With no cool-off period on new cars in California, I cannot return the car which at this point has 12 miles on it, so I am forced to drive unsafely. I ran google search for Honda head rest complaints and found out that customers have been complaining about Honda's new head rests for the same very reason since 2007, for most of their models - from Accord and Odyssey to Fit. What makes the matter worse is that you cannot reverse the headrest as there are grooves only on one of the two support poles. By making head restraint extremely uncomfortable to use, Honda is forcing its customers to drive unsafely, specifically without head restraint. I spoke to service manager at my dealer and he told me that Honda does not have adjustable or reversible head restraint. He is also aware of the complaints from the customers. Solution should be easy to implement by making the head rest reversible for those like me with neck or back problems. I drove Honda for 18 years and cannot believe that Honda has not responded to 3 years of continuous complaints by the customers. There is no injuries yet, as the car is sitting in my garage as I am afraid to drive it. I don't have VIN with me right now, but this issue is not specific to the car, it is widespread across the models of Honda.
