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.

2004 Honda S2000 Owner Comments

problem #1

About a year ago I put my soft top down on my 2004 Honda S2000 when all of the sudden I heard a loud pop. I could not find anything wrong at the time until I started driving with my top up and heard a lot of whispering sounds. There was a fine cut right above the release latch/hinge on my soft top. I brought it to the attention of the Honda dealership of whom I purchased the car from. They said that there was a known issue with my exact problem from the year from 2005 to 2008 for the Honda S2000. Seeing that I bought my car used (from their lot), out of warranty, and not within the years the service bulletin was for, they were going to charge me over $2500 to replace the top for a defect that was on the car. I am providing the Honda service bulletin number for your records: 09-033. Honda can pull up that service bulletin and there it will explain the issues and what actions needs to be taken place. I have done my research and there are a lot of car owners with his car that have been having these issues and was force to pay to get it fixed!
