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.

I hydroplaned, going 10 mph under the speed limit, hit every quarter panel along the guardrail (including a head-on collision with the guard rail), and out of 10 airbags, not one deployed. I felt like I was bounced around the car like a rag doll (yes, I was wearing my seatbelt). Car was totaled, I sustained shoulder, neck, and wrist injuries, but was shocked that airbags did not deploy.

The A/C condenser is extremely exposed to damage from road debris. There are "vents" which lie below the license plate holder near the road, wide enough to Fit a fist and the length of the front bumper. This allows all kinds of road debris to enter and hit the A/C condenser only inches behind the opening. This damage has been reported on a number of websites from model year 2008 to 2011. A similar issue has also been reported in a number of other Honda car models, including the CR-V and the Odyssey, which resulted in a successful class action lawsuit. Honda, however, still does not provide a grill or other form of protection despite the reported problem and does not cover the repairs with their bumper to bumper or Honda care warranties.
