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

This car was in an accident, it was rear-ended by another vehicle. This Honda Fit was stopped in traffic at a construction zone in Suburban cary, nc when it was hit from behind by a small truck that was going approx. 45+ mph. The impact pushed the Fit forward into some construction materials. The truck driver was found fully responsible for the crash and was not injured. For the Fit, air bags inflated for the passenger side but none for the driver. Fortunately, the driver was the only person in the Fit. As shown in pictures (attached), the driver' seat tipped backwards from it's upright position. The head rest completely fell off and ended up in the back seat, giving the driver minimal protection. In addition, a metal bar under the driver's seat was thrust forward, causing a deep and large hematoma in the driver's leg.

2013 Honda Fit. Consumer writes in regards to air conditioner and front seat issues. The consumer stated the ac cycled down when the outside temperature was 80 or above, when she has been on the road for as little as 30 minutes. The ac was cycling off just when she needed it most. The front seats were uncomfortable. The consumer had to add expensive gel cushion to the seat. It helped, but it pushed her forward making it difficult to get her right knee past the steering column as she entered and exited the vehicle. Also, the vehicle sat very low to the ground, which put the vehicle at risk for damage from road debris.
