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 thought my daughter needed balance & alignment, however instead we had to replace the right lower control arm & ball joint. Imagine my surprise when I was told that a vehicle less than 50K miles-never involved in a accident, good condition required this kind of work! it's only 3 yrs old! I called the Honda dealer (in case there was a recall that I was unaware of) nope-no recall. My mechanic told me this was certainly a factory defect! thank god-her wheel did not come off while driving, causing an accident or something worse! anyways-$460.14 later-she is safe and vehicle is running smooth. I am very disappointed in this vehicle design. I strongly feel that Honda should have been on top of this issue. Just because a car is economical doesn't mean it has to be poorly designed. My poor daughter is trying to plan her wedding. Can you imagine if something would have happened to her or anyone else on the road! how careless! I would never recommend this car to anyone-ever!
