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.

Vehicle purchased 07/12/2010 with 520mi on odometer on 3 different occasions a wheel sensor for the TPMS has failed. The first two were replaced under vehicle warranty, no questions asked. Took the vehicle to hendrick Honda of bradenton Florida ( the only shop to do any work on this vehicle!) on 09/04/2014 I took it in for an oil change and the TPMS error that I'm so getting used to...the service adviser stated it would cost over $200 dollar to replace (not in the budget this week). He would not tell me which wheel had the bad sensor ( I just wanted to know if it was a new fail or an old one) shop would not give me that information!!!! I asked for the TPMS system to be disabled and was told that it cannot be....it is federally mandated system...now one would think the wheel sensors are part of the mandated system right" no, they are not said the service adviser...a federally mandated system would by description be equal to the sum of all of it's parts correct??" no even this being the third failure in 4 years they would not replace a major part of the vehicles safety system with a pattern of failing. So now they cross rotated the tires, and I have no idea which is the bad wheel....safety first.

Insight 4-cyl

  • 28,500 miles
My Honda Insight came new with the dunlop sp 31A tire. I do not do extreme, hard cornering or race driving, this is simple a commuter vehicle. There was about 3/32 to 2/32 of an inch of tread left, on all four tires. On 7/25/12 I drove to the store and noticed the driver side front tire had a defect. The tread had separated from the tire on both the inside and outside of the tire but was still loosely connected in the middle. I took my vehicle to a tire store to replace all four tires. I felt very unsafe with the dunlop tires so I replaced all four, fearing this would happen at a high speed and the results could be fatal. (the defective tires are not available) I did some research about people that have this same size tire, on the same vehicle (Honda Insight). I noticed several issues of a similar nature. For example, tread separation, fast wear, cracking and bubbling. It seems to me that there could be a major issue with these tires that could jeopardize the safety of several people.
