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.

The contact owns a 2009 Honda Ridgeline. The contact stated that while driving at approximately 40 mph, the vehicle was hesitating and the engine revved causing the vehicle to stall as an unknown warning light illuminated. The vehicle was unable to restart. The vehicle was towed to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the radiator, the trans cooler line and the transmission fluid needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 108,000.

One day I was using the A/C and everything was fine. After my work shift I tried to kick on the A/C system and nothing happens. The screen indicates that everything is working, however, even with the fan dial on full. Nothing is flowing through the vents. I had the Honda dealership take a look and they told me the harness was fried and that it would be $900 to fix it, when my car payment is $600. They also told me that this was a common issue in 2006 and 2007 models and recalls have been issued for both years. I asked them why has the problem not been fixed before the 2008 models were released. They told me to ask Honda... this is a complete and utter disappointment. How does a known problem in previous models not been fixed before the release of future models and why hasn't Honda taken time to recall the trucks or offer a free fix.
