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.

Fit 4-cyl

My car engine does not respond to the accelerator when starting from a standstill with the steering wheel turned to the right or left. This has happened seven times in the 1300 miles I have driven the car. This abnormal condition has left me momentarily stopped in the middle of busy intersections. I find that if I am steering straight ahead, the vehicle will not malfunction but when it does happen, pressing the accelerator to the floor will cause the engine to respond, eventually. Honda should address this serious and potentially dangerous condition.
