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.

1997 Honda Passport Owner Comments

I bought my Honda knowing that the belts needed to be tightened. I got them tightened and about a week later one was cut to pieces while I was going down the highway. So bought all new belts, put them on and now the new ones want to scream now. You put belt dressing on them but it does nothing but make it louder when it rains. If you put it on when it is dry, you can go about 5 miles and they start up again! Is there some kind of pulley that needs to be replaced or something? Please help! Also about the automatic transmission, there needs to be a note under the hood saying that there isn't a dipstick. I looked for a very long time before I found that out.
