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.

1998 Honda Passport Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 302008


  • 120,000 miles


I was driving my 1998 Honda Passport at a speed of 35 mph on a clear day, on a straight level road. The weather conditions were clear and the road conditions were good. The vehicle was in good shape with no prior accidents. At one point a vehicle cut in front of me and I ran into the side of the vehicle. The Honda was a total loss. The airbags failed to deploy! I sustained severe injuries to my neck. If the airbags had deployed I would not have sustained neck injuries. Nothing was done to correct the airbag deficiencies and there is no maintenance schedule to determine if indeed there was a deficiency in the airbag system.
