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.

front sub frame rusting front sub frame rusting front sub frame rusting front sub frame rusting

Rear sub frame corrosion it was recalled in 2007 and I've taken to the dealer to repair this problem which was no visible rust roat at the time. I have taken to dealer for other maintenance not once did they ever notify me of this problem when the car it up on the lift they can see the problem I think that the job was not done correctly or may not at all according to letter state safe to drive not if your bottom falls out

Update from Sep 17, 2015: I returned to the dealership 9/2015 to inform that the bottom of my car the floor board panels are totally rotted out one side big hole and carpet exposed. I 'm able to see the rot and the service tech can see it hanging from the bottom they advise me its not covered under the plan if I want it fixed it will cost you its over $1,500.00 and it will take a few hours to fix it. So Co. makes this bad product and they won't fix it unless I pay their price what are they waiting for accident to happen before its recalled they away that they have a problem because the other recall in 2007 for subframe corrosion replacement, its all related.

Bottom of car had rust hole so big could fit two of my fist in it and feel back side of interior floor carpeting. Vehicle was sold to me by a supposedly reputable dealer, and was like that at time of purchase. (Kuni Honda of Colorado) Needless to say would never go there again, if sell cars like that. My fault for not checking it out with 3rd party. Needless to say because of that problem and previously reported suspension frame noise I got rid of the p.o.s. No longer own the vehicle and am a lot happier now.
