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.

Seat belt emergency retraction mode engaged when seat belt was not locked in. The seat belt retracted and almost strangulated a little boy. It had to be cut to release him or he may have died. We cannot find any information that provided any other recourse but to cut the seat belt. We do not believe the seat belt should have retracted in this manner when not buckled. We are not sure whether Honda would charge anything to repair this. The little boy however is still very upset.

Seatbelts will not retract. Driver's side seat belt does not retract correctly. Instead of door opening it presses forward. Seat belt replaced three times because belt continued to come out until maximum length and would not retract. Automatic sliding door was broke. The consumer is asking for replacement or refund for the vehicle.
