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: The last model year of the 6th generation Civic (1996-2000) and, subsequently, the last model year before the popular car was overrun with transmission problems.

My car gave me no warning that the tranny was about to go out. My check engine light came on then a couple of miles later it just wouldn't go. I had to coast into a gas station parking lot. Good thing it was close. I let it sit for a couple of minutes then I started it up. It went but I didn't even get a mile down the road. So I had it towed home. Now they're saying I need a whole new transmission. A friend of mine told me there was a recall on those transmission a while back. But we checked mine and they're saying it's not under the recall. But I really think it is.
