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.

I was driving my 2001 Honda Passport when it started jerking to one side after letting off the gas, but only slightly, like wind had hit the car all of a sudden. This went on for a couple days, and when I was going around a turn, I heard a loud noise, like something breaking and grinding, and the car started to shimmy all over the road. When I had it looked at, I was told its unfixable because there is frame rot where the rear suspension lower link completely rotted off the frame and the A-arm also completely rotted off. There are swiss-cheese like holes all through the frame. It is now undriveable. According to my research this is a known issue, and a possible recall. I very strongly agree that there should be a recall or class action lawsuit. I was very luck Y that we were only going about 10 mph when it happened, or there could have been a serious crash. This is obviously a manufacturer error.

I was driving on a straight 2-lane state route. While crossing an intersecting 4-lane highway, I heard a small noise in the rear. Immediately after crossing the intersection, I experience entire loss of control of my vehicle. I swerved from side to side while attempting to slow down and was sure the vehicle was going to roll over on its side. After slowing to a stop, I was on the opposite side of the road in a small turn-around facing the opposite direction. I did not attempt to drive any further and called for a tow. The tow-driver indicated that he saw the problem and took me to the driver side of the vehicle. He then showed me the rear link bar had disconnected from the frame. It appeared it had rusted away from the frame. We then looked on the passenger side to see that it was also rusted very badly was also ready to break away from the frame. When my life flashed before my eyes, all I could do was pray and be thankful that my children were not in the vehicle with me and that my newly licensed 17 year old was not driving at the time. I am in the process of contacting Honda of America customer relations to be advised as to their stance on this issue.

Frame rusted through causing control problems; back traction bar rotted off. Frame above wheels completely rotted out to three feet each side of wheel. Steering wheel at odd position. Possibly shifting whole back axle. Are told nothing can be done and dealership neglects to return calls and emails regarding problem even though they had completed work on the brakes and other repairs during the last year leading us to think they should have noticed a problem.
