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

  • 162,000 miles


My !998 Honda Civic ex stalled on freeway while going at 50mph. It was due to failure of ignition switch. Honda had a recall on certain van models only and my vehicle is not on the list. My safety is at stake here so are others who drives a Honda. Although I have 162,000 miles on the vehicle, the switch as far as I know is not an item called out for replacement as part of the vehicle maintenance. So how would I know when to replace if it is not an item that is a required attention when vehicle is brought in for service, this is a safety hazard and life endangering problem. I could have been killed on the freeway when the car stalled.
