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.

I bought 1999 Honda Civic five months ago to date when in park automatic shift sticks until you pump the brake a few times then it will shift.Problems with steering wheel locking up before moving you have to move steering wheel back and forth with force.From reading other complaints on Honda civics it is time to buy a different brand of vehicle other then Honda. One sure thing is I will get rid of this Honda civic death trap before it is to late for me or someone else driving it down the road.I am going to the Ford dealer ship tomorrow.08/14/2010. the civic has 150 thousand miles'
