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.

In motion. Could not stop at 2 redlights. Took it to my garage and would not stop again, causing me to crash through laundry room wall, demolishing washer, dryer utility sink etc.

Pedal brake makes a "click" sound when is pressed driving at over 35 mph. Honda service tech at local dealer says is expected as the pedals has links and switches after brake pedal. Louder "click" sounds at the area of gear shaft plastic cover in parking position when car is stationed and brake pedal is pressed. Honda service tech. Says is expected once this model has electronic parking brake with switches in that area. At front of the passanger side in the dashboard a visible line that rises a structure under the plastic liner in a rectangular shape whit a line crossin from side to side, increasing its appearence with the heat by sunlight exposure. Honda service tech. Explains is expected in all this models once the air bag would deploy through that apparent window when is properly triggered. Rear camera image´S screen sporadically blurs and tremble when is dark and low ouside illumination is present. If window switch is deppressed at that moment either up or down and keep extra pressing would show in the camera screen a low and high discrete illumination, like that seeing in a voltage variation in light bulbs. Since all scans, inspections, and comparisons with alike vehicules, done at the local dealer service deparment, passed as expected, is my personal concern of safety and quality of the product to post and or share this information for possible safety issues that may arise related to this observations.
