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

problem #1

Aug 212002

(reported on)


  • Manual transmission
  • miles


Brake system is malfunctioning and engaging involuntarily. Front end vibrates. Also, left wheel gets hot and locks up. Vehicle has a manual transmission and should roll back when the foot is taken off of brake pedal on an incline. Instead, the vehicle does not move. Dealer was notified and could not duplicate problem. The vehicle would vibrate to the point where the consumer would have to pull off of the road, for a third time the vehicle would not duplicate the problem. The left front brake caliper and hose have been replaced. Consumer does not know if the problem has been corrected.
