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.

1998 Honda Civic Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 012009


  • 110,000 miles


The contact owns a 1998 Honda Civic ex. The contact stated the front driver and passenger side windows came out of the rolling track constantly. The contact had to remove the door panel in order to put the window back on the rail and resolve the issue each time the failure recurred. The contact stated that she was unable to open the window. The vehicle was taken to the mechanic who determined that the mechanism that allowed the windows to be opened or closed needed to be replaced. The contact made the repair but failure persisted. The current mileage was 140,000. The failure mileage was 110,000.
