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.

On a number of occasions when brakes are applied in a panic stop they fail to respond, causing extended stopping distance. Dealer has been contacted.

problem #1

Passport 4WD

  • miles
Prior to 1st incident, noticed spongy non-responsive brakes at all speeds. As the problem progressed, the brake pedal would go down to the floor and brake distance increased. On 3 occurrences, I experienced near collisions. I first noticed the problem on June 29th, 2001. Second incident occurred without notice as I was pulling out of a parking lot at approx 8 miles/hr. First, I heard a sound as I was slowing down to approach the signal. Then, the ABS went off for approx. 5 to 10 seconds and during that time, I was not able to stop. I proceeded to turn right at the red signal with no other option available to me at the time. From there, I took the vehicle to Suburban Honda where I originally bought and serviced my Honda Passport. Please note that the ABS indicator light came on the night before the 2nd incident.
