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.

After refueling gas on thurday, November 5, 1998: 2 minutes into trip home (10 min trip), I heard pop/explosion in left-rear. On arrival, noticed that the gas cap was hanging on the side of the vehicle - but was in place after gas refuel. On Friday, November 6, 1998: Noticed that gas showed at 1/2 with only 45 miles driven after refueling (I had reset trip meter after fuel). During the course of the day, the gas gauge showed gas levels ranging from 1/2 to 3/4 - these levels would not remain constant (even when parked). Vehicle not driven Saturday and Sunday (7th and 8th) on Monday, November 9, 1998: Vehicle exhibited similar problems as stated for Friday, November 6, 1998 (see above). On Tuesday, November 10, 1998 (yesterday): Vehicle exhibited similar problems as stated for Friday, November 6, 1998.

At speeds around 50 mph and above, vehicle has a persistent shimmy (vibration) in the steering wheel. Honda dealer says it is the tires, tire dealer says the tires are ok. Dealer kept the vehicle all day, and the problem was about 90 percent better. But the shimmy came back within a month. Have talked to Honda's customer service people, they claim no knoweldge of it. But the internet is full of reports of the shimmy on early production vehicles (like mine). I seem to have exhausted all other avenues, so I am now filing this report( dot number: )

When driving at 25 mph the engine check light came on and stayed on, and the air conditioner went out and was blowing out hot air. Check engine light is still coming on. Dealer replaced the gas cape, and the consumer was having problem with the exhaust system. Vehicle has been in the shop six times, and the dealer fixed everything. Consumer just got the vehicle out as of 11-05-98, and the accelerator pedal broke while the consumer was driving, and a metal piece was hanging down. The consumer used the metal part to drive when the accelerator pad broke.
