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.

When car was 8 months old with about 25,000 miles on it, it began stalling. Only premium shell gasoline was ever put in this car. Injector cleaner was put in a few times with no results. Car was taken into one dealership to be told first that "she must not be pushing the clutch in all the way" at which time they did an extensive testing of the clutch. We had both told them this was not clutch related as the car would also die in neutral. So then they came to the conclusion that it must have been bad gas, at which time they gave it back. The second time they decided it was bent valves, which "could only have been caused by driver downshifting". this is not the case, but was still told it would cost $2600 to fix, because Honda would not warranty it. So, I attempted to take it to another dealer who after waiting (not on people in front of me, just waiting for someone to help me)15 minutes, and having driven 15 miles on my lunch hour, I was rudely approached and hatefully asked "what I was there for". after explaining the situation with the car, he said "oh, okay so we're test the valves again?" and "there will be an $85 diagnosis fee". at which time I said forget it and walked out. I called Honda corporation this morning just to explain it all over to them and then asked what they could do to help, I was told they cannot make a dealership do anything. There is a recall for Honda engines but I was told that the engine in the S2000 does not have the same fuel delivery system so it doesn't apply, even though the car has the same symptoms. It stalls several times a day and this has been going on for a couple of months. Absolutely nothing has been done to fix the problem.
