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. Notes: Haven't we all owned one of these things at some point? Despite being a popular first car for teenage drivers and, as a result, being beat up like no other, the late 90's Civic is a true endurance car. And it still gets better gas mileage than more modern cars.

have a gripe with Honda. I live in Vancouver Canada, and my Honda Civic manual states that I have to follow the 'severe' schedule because I live in Canada. This means I have to take it in for maintenance about twice as much as if I lived in the US. I wanted to know why, as I drive mainly highway and live in a mild climate. I have called three local Honda dealerships, one didn't know there were two maintenance schedules, another said it was because the Canadian and US cars were built differently. I then called the Honda Customer Service (down east somewhere) spoke to someone called Annie, and she wouldn't answer my question. All she kept saying was 'that is the way the cars were tested and that is why the there was a difference in the maintenance schedules.'

I don't want to follow the 'severe' schedule if I don't need to as it is costing me a lot of extra money, but Honda doesn't seem to want to answer my question. Definately puts me off buying another Honda.
