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.

I was in a very minor accident on 12/6/14 at approximately 6:00 pm in austin, tx (on loop 1 near fm 2222). I rear ended another vehicle. The airbags did not deploy because I was not going fast enough (I guess). However, the computer indicated the air bags were disabled. Additionally, the driver's side seat belt was locked making it inoperable. Although the car was drivable, the inoperable airbags and seat belt made the car extremely unsafe to drive. Being that it was Saturday evening, I had no choice but to drive it. I am very upset that Honda put me in this situation. According to other Honda owners who have had minor front end collisions, this is the standard car response. This needs to be rectified. It is not only a racket that forces Honda owners to take their cars to the dealership, it also jeopardizes our safety.

While pulling into a parking place at a neighborhood grocery store, I stepped on the brake and the car accelerated with a huge lunge into the car facing me. If the other vehicle had not been a large van I would have not have been able to stop the car because at that point I lost complete control of my vehicle. Just thinking of what 'might have been' is terrifying! in searching the internet I found at least four of these unintended acceleration accounts..... same car, same year, same model. No recall yet but there should be. Damage is expected to be around $5K.
