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.

OMG!! I can't believe that the frame on my Honda Passport fell apart. The frame was so rusted that the mechanic was scared to put it on a lift. My husband had just turned onto an overpass when he hear the loud "BOOM" then lost control of the car! I am so lucky that nothing serious happened! This is outrageous that nothing has been done about this problem. The body of the car is great! The interior is perfect!! I can't get anything for this car now....maybe I can sell a few parts! We are so very fortunate that our children were not in the car at that time.

I am severely dissappointed in Honda! I will try to contact the US Dept. of Transportation to see if there is anything that can be done. Christmas is in 1 week, instead of finishing up gifts for my children, I'm buying another car!!!

I have had an electrical problem within a month of getting this vehicle used. I took it back to the dealer and they gave me the royal run-a-round. So I have driven my call for the past 4 years or so with the dash board lights flicking off & on at different times. For

the past few months some warning lights never go out and when I take it to the local mechanic to have them check for a problem they tell me nothing is wrong except the problem with the wiring. Well I located a mechanic who was willing to check for the wiring problem. When I went to pick it up he told me that I had a BIG problem with the frame & that he was really surprised at how bad it was & he said this needs immediate attention. He took a pen and push on a section of the frame that was very rusted & with out much effort his pen went right through. Sure make you wonder what these dealers are doing & how are they sleeping knowing they have unsafe vehicles on the road that can cause injury to so many people. This is my only vehicle & with the economy so bad

along with the unstable job situation it's hard to want to even commit to a car payment.

I am just getting by with a house payment.

Thanks for letting me gripe.
