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

Mar 132009

Civic DX 4 cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 214,000 miles


The civic has been a good car to me. I have run the poop out it. Current mileage is 214,000. Last week the check engine light came on. Honda quoted $1,100 to replace cat. converter. I've seen the complaints here, and it is pot luck if the replacement works. Going to try resetting the ECM by disconnecting the battery for an 1/2 hour and see what happens.... Anyone who can give me any info will be appreciated.
