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.

The tire pressure gauge (tpmg) on the dashboard comes on randomly. When reset it stays off for minutes then comes on again. It stays on even with correct recommended tire pressure in all 4 tires. The spare tire is not hooked up to this gauge. This car is mostly highway driven at speeds of 65 mph when this occurs but also occurs randomly at other speeds. When the gauge comes on the tire pressure is always normal.

My wife was driving the 2016 Honda Fit hatchback which is about 3 months old with 1245 miles on the speedometer. She was on a city street during a hard rain. The pressure from the rain water from the street splashing underneath the car seemed to strip the 4 plastic bolts off that were holding the front floor engine cover(the large black plastic engine cover that I call( the skid plate) causing it to fall and drag on the road all the way home. The part # IS74641-T5R-A00. The wolfchase Honda dealer charged us $418.37 to replace this part.I went online to car and their were several NHTSA miscellaneous problems/ complaints on the 2015 and 2016 Honda Fit concerning this same problem with other Honda Fit owners. One owner said that 4 plastic screws were all that held this cover on the car. The plastic screws must not be strong enough to take the effects of bumpy rough roads or pressure from rain water crashing against the cover. They said that they had these covers replaced but they kept falling off. I believe that this is a factory defect and that the Honda co. Needs to address this problem and stop charging owners 4 to 5 hundred dollars for this repair. The problem makes us scared to drive this car in the rain or bumpy rough roads. When these plastic screws break and fall out they dislodge the cover from the car causing it to drag the street with very loud noises and ruining the plastic engine cover. I believe metal or steel screws could hold this cover on more securely. Surely Honda can design something better for this problem. When you pay around $20,000 for a new car and only have 1245 miles on it at the time of this problem and the car is less than 3 months old, you really expect a better safer and more reliable vehicle.
