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 driving my 2005 Honda Odyssey and noticed that the car was leaking antifreeze. I took it to the dealer and they said that a rock hit the radiator and that they would need to put a new one in. It was not covered under warranty because it was caused by a rock. The dealer said that they see a lot of these cases and it should be recalled.

Road debris or small rock came through the air dam in the lower valance on the front bumper, striking the air conditioner condenser and piercing a hole in it. This resulted in a leak of the air conditioner coolant and required replacement of the condenser unit at approximately $700. American Honda will not cover under their vehicle warranty because they claim it is due to a road hazard and not from a manufacturing defect. I respectfully disagree and believe this is a latent design defect, that from a quick internet search, appears to be occurring regularly on several Honda models. This damage is also causing the release of potentially harmful air conditioner freon into the atmosphere. Most importantly, in 30+ years of driving, I have never heard of a pebble causing such damage on a vehicle. It is unconscionable for american Honda to take the position that this is a road hazard and to direct their customers to file with their insurance carriers for relief.
