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.

problem #2

The first time this problem occurred was driving on nd hwy. 15. the driver's sliding door would come unlatched when driving down the road at 65 mph. Push the automatic door latch button again and it stayed latched for about 7 miles and it would unlatch itself and the alarm would go off. Telling you the slidingdoor was unlatched. I took the van to rydell's Honda dealer in grand forks, nd they replace the latch and rollers on both sliding doors. They said it happens when you live on gravel roads and the rollers and latches would get wore because the rollers and part of the latch is made of plastic. Honda service manager told us to try to keep the roller guides clean and pressure wash the roller guide really well. We did this for about a year clean the the guides biweekly and we had the same troubles again. This time Honda replaced on latch on the driver's side and three weeks later the other side had the same problem too. We were luckily this only had happen close to town and we never were in an accident when this problem occurred. The doors would come unlatched without notice and the door will be open about an inch or two. It doesn't matter if you try to shut the doors manually or automatic it will still open and unlatch on its own when ever it would like too. We only live on about 3 miles of gravel so to have this problem with two young children ages nine and eight is scary.

At low speeds from 20-35 miles per hour, the vehicle ABS causes braking to fail to halt the vehicle in the anticipated distance of other cars. It takes 3.5 car lengths at 18-20 mph, which can lead to rear end collision with the vehicle in front of you. You are forced to keep double the normal number of car lengths behind the vehicle in front of you. And your front wheels start sort of 'hopping' causing partial loss of traction, during the ABS cycle that probably shouldn't be engaging. I had the same experience with my prior 2007 Honda Accord hybrid, only worsened by the various hybrid components kicking in and out, including the regen braking, and the engine cutoff, as well as the ABS and the transmission downshifting. I had two minor rear end front end accidents but frequently found myself skidding into intersections. Both vehicles also suffered from difficulty regulating speed without using the brakes, and very sensitive speed braking. Nonetheless, I think the ABS, suspension and the braking are combining to cause the vehicle to partly lose traction and leads to extended braking distances at low speed. I have not only repeatedly written and called Honda about this particular problem, I've even threatened to terminate my lease agreement over it. Honda's only response to my calls and letters since 2008 is that 'there is no outstanding recall regarding the condition you are reporting', to which my comment: "there darn well should be!" falls on very deaf corporate ears.
