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.

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.

I purchased my second Honda automobile three months ago: A brand new 2011 Honda Fit with less than 10 miles on it. Just drove to dallas to see my grandkids and coming back, the air conditioning went out. I took it into don carlton Honda this morning - and they are telling me that a "rock must have gone through the grill" and punctured a hole in the compressor - the cost" $780!!! now, after researching on the internet, I find that this has been a complaint since 2009. I hesitate to call this a "racket" but hello???" I even discovered that some people have to rig a screen to prevent the rocks from coming into the engine. This is a defect in the design that needs to be fixed. I would like to know how many technical service bulletins have been issued regarding this defect. To have a 3 month old 2011 automobile have to have air conditioning replacement is outrageous. I purchased a brand new Honda so that I would not have repair bills on my limited income.
