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

Dec 142011

Prelude

  • Automatic transmission
  • 72,000 miles

After 10 years of ownership, experienced serious leaks from both left and right axle seals over the course of one year. Had both seals replaced by Honda dealer. Seals functioned fine for a few months, but then experienced failure of both seals again accompanied by whining sound coming from transmission when accelerating beyond 30 MPH. Honda dealer determined that differential bearings had worn out after only 72,000 miles on the vehicle and one owner. New transmission is required at quoted cost of over $4,500 (dealer repair).
