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

Jan 182003

Civic 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission

Within fifteen minutes of having new rear tires put on my car, I experienced a sidewall blowout on the left rear tire while going around a left hand turn at about 40 mph. This caused my vehicle to spin out of control and slam head first into a concrete pillar at the base of a light pole. The vehicle was completely totaled and I suffered minor injuries. Had I not been wearing a seat belt I would have been killed. If I had anyone in the front passenger seat they would have probably lost their legs as the floor was pushed up to the same level as the seat.
