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.

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 braking hard to avoid impacting vehicle stopped on highway seat belts locked up and now will not release. Honda diagnostic incorrectly states SRS system was triggered by impact - car sustained no damage. Recommendation is to replace front seat belts at $345.62 each and SRS control unit at $680.42, plus labor. American Honda customer service states that the seat belt system performed as it should. It is logical for passive restraints, like air bags, to work only once, but illogical for seat belts to fail after one use. Apparently Honda considers seat belts that works once a success. In fact this active restraint system failed after one use, leaving Honda drivers unable to obey the law and buckle up while driving before they pay $1500+ for avoiding a collision!
