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 purchased this car in August, 1998 and from the begining, experienced brake noise problems. One dealer tried to fix the problem a number of times but gave up in the end and I was told that "such brake noise is acceptable." My point at the time was that brake noise is symptomatic of a problem, a potentially safety-related problem (especially since we are dealing with brakes). I complained to the manufacturer, who agreed to extend the warranty on the brakes only from three years/36,000 miles to five years/60,000 miles. On September 16, 2000, I brought the car in to another dealer with brake shuddering and noise problems. The dealer found that the rotors and drums were out of spec and I spent $144 to have the rotors and drums turned. I tried to use my warranty but was told that the fix was maintenance and was not covered by the warranty. I again complained to the manufacturer but my complaint was denied. My contention is that a car of such young age and low mileage should not have to have its rotors and drums turned and that such a problem is indicative of a manufacturing defect which american Honda refuses to acknowledge.
