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.

2003 Honda Inspire Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 172015

Inspire 30TL 3.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 117,439 miles


I have recently purchased a used Honda Inspire (JDM version of the Honda Accord). Exactly one shy month with the vehicle, getting on the highway, transmission started failing. RPM Revs, gear will not change. Tried to stop the car and start over, same problem. So stuck in the middle of the road and the car does not move. Had to tow the vehicle to a local Honda garage.

Today, July 20, 2015 I am awaiting a response from the mechanic to what is the problem with the transmission. I have heard from local Honda dealer, a new transmission is up to $6.000.

Fingers crossed that this problem is not as major.
