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.

2013 Honda Fit Owner Comments

problem #1

There are "vents" below the license plate holder near the road, wide enough to significantly expose the engine to damage from road debris such as a big rock. This causes road debris to enter and hit the A/C condenser only inches behind the opening. I have researched this problem and have seen this reported 3 times in several years to From model year 2010 to 2014. Honda had a problemwith other Honda car models which resulted in a successful class action lawsuit. Honda still does not provide a grill cover or other form of protection despite the lawsuit and reports. They also do not cover the repairs with their manufacture warranty. To have a 9 month old 2013 automobile have to have air conditioning replacement is outrageous. This is a edesign defect and Honda should address the issue which may be of safety when people stop on the side of the road to address it regularly. The repairs are approx. $1,000 each and it seems Honda may be running a racket with this recurring defect issue.
