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.

Loud "clank" noise from brake calipers the first time brakes are applied after changing direction (forward to reverse or reverse to forward). This has happened since new; the dealer service rep states "they all do that", and said he was surprised Honda had not come up with some kind of fix because they were getting a lot of complaints about the very disconcerting noise.
