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.

1998 Honda Prelude Owner Comments

problem #1

I own a 1998 Honda Prelude. The headlight lenses have become fogged and cloudy and cannot be cleaned. The poor illumination of the roadway provided by these fogged and cloudy headlights is a clear violation of standard 108. The fogginess and cloudiness of the headlight lenses is a condition resultant from substandard factory installed equipment. The research I have done confirms that car owners, nationally, have been complaining about similar conditions for many years. I have also contacted the dealership and they refuse to accept responsibility for factory installation of substandard safety equipment. The dealership refuses to take any steps to replace this substandard headlight lenses unless I pay for the cost of their replacement, which they quote to me as $300 per lens. Since this is a manufacturers defect, I believe the manufacturer should be responsible for fixing the problem.
