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.

problem #2

A slit, about 1" long, appeared in the convertible top rear quarterpanel. Yesterday, I noticed on the other side of the car, in the exact same spot, an indentation, about to become another slit. Honda dealer and customer complaint both notified. They have nothing on file about this issue and offered no solutions. There obviously is an issue with the retraction mechanism design or function. Wear on a retracted convertible top, to the point of penetration, is unacceptable.

The convertible top on my Honda S2000 has ripped for the second time. The first time the top was replaced under warranty. Under independent examination the top was found to have an engineering defect where the fabric top rubs against a sharp metal component of the top frame causing a tear.
