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.

The driver side window is not working properly. The window has a hard time opening and closing. Sometimes the window would get stuck while in operation and the only way to keep window moving is to constantly switch the window switch back and forth between opening and closing. Worst is when the window would slip out of its sliding bracket. When this happens, the window is totally stuck and the door has to be taken apart so that the window can be put back into its bracket. This is a potential safety issue.

1998 Honda Civic ex coupe- great car except for the power windows. I have not been able to have them professionally fixed because of the cost. They have been stuck in the up position for a few years now. They come off track if I try to roll them down and the glass literally falls into the door.
