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

  • 29,936 miles
At 29,000 had to replace tires, sidewall cracking and one tire had a bubble. Asked Honda about promised warranty and they said there was no warranty, contact tire dealer but tires were a special purchase by Honda. TPMS damaged by wartart when mounting new tires, fixed & reset by Honda. Had Honda do a front end alignment they state left wheel "frozen" -"unfixable" I did hit brakes very had about 6 weeks ago, felt tires freeze, grab, car went sideways. Can this be related to ESC recall?
