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 purchased a 2002 Honda Passport used, I recently heard a noise under the car and when checked part of the frame was broken. I looked online and found a recall, never notified about it. I called a dealer and waited 5 days and called them again and they set up an appointment for me. I took the vehicle in and was told that it is unsafe to drive and they will not release it to me. They said that is not the tracking link that is the problem, it is the frame. This vehicle should be recalled for the frame rotting not just the tracking links. Honda is very unprofessional and this is a serious problem.

I took my truck to Honda cause the chassis looks and feel really bad but the spare some black paint and told me its fine to drive but I don't really feel safe driving my truck cause it feels like a problem waiting to happen.
