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.

2001 Honda Prelude Owner Comments

While driving down the freeway last year, I heard a screeching noise under the hood of my 2001 Honda Prelude. About approximately 10 seconds later I heard something fall onto the street and very hot air began blowing out my air conditioner (which up until that point was blowing very cold air). It turns out that the air conditioner clutch pulley fell off my car and I have been told that this is a manufacturer defect by Honda. They seem not to care and thus refuse to fix it. I reside in Arizona where temperatures reach 110 plus in the summer. I have reported this problem to North american Honda in the hopes that some resolution could be resolved, but nothing has been done to correct. Air condition pulleys do not just fall off a vehicle!
