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.

2001 Honda Passport Owner Comments

A few years back my trailing linkage on both sides of vehicle rusted away from frame. The drivers side was first and I was traveling at 50 mph. Hit pot hole and drivers side linkage broke off. Causing me to fish tail in traffic and almost crash. Now I have two cracks in my frame and the rear cross member is rusted through. I have also had the fuel tank support fixed and welded back onto my truck. This will cost me thousands to fix to hopefully make it a drivable vehicle again. Or. american Honda can buyout these vehicles from these owners.

Fuel tank dropped down, checked and it was rusted out and broke free from frame which also rusted out. The entire frame is rusted out, I have never seen a frame rust completely out like this ! Honda told me there was a recall and my wife took it to a dealer and they said the problem that was in the recall didn't affect the area they will have to replace. The dealer said they couldn't fix the problem because the whole frame was rusted out and the vehicle was unsafe. Now what ? I guess I should sell all my Honda and buy american motors.

The driver's side linkage that connects the rear axle to the frame separated completely due to corrosion. I took it to Honda for the recall, which service bulletin 10-079 states Honda will pay for vehicles less than 10 years old at the time of the recall (Sept 2010)), and they determined the damage was so bad that they would not attempt to fix the vehicle. I feel I should be reimbursed for my vehicle since the defect has caused such extensive damage as to render the vehicle unsafe.

This model 2001 Honda Passport has a history of frame rust. There was one recall 2010 but it did not address tank shield rust - only rear axle parts. The Passport has 72373 miles and the Honda dealer wants to charge for a report requested by Honda Motors. *** this point I do not know if the gas tank is going to fall out.****
