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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2001 Civic has transmission problems, transmission problems & more transmission problems. Did we mention transmission problems? And a dangerous defect with the front airbag that didn't get recalled for 10 years.

Although eventually the defective 2001 Civic airbag inflators were fixed under recalls in 2011 & 2013, that meant for 10 to 12 years airbags were activating with excessive force where metal fragments went shooting into passengers when the airbag deployed.

As for the 2001 Civic's transmission woes? Honda conducted a major transmission recall in 2004 & settled a class action lawsuit for defective transmissions in 2006. But, neither the recall or the lawsuit included the 2001 Civic.

Last thing to consider - the 2001 Civic is the most-recalled car ever, closely followed by the 2002 Civic & the 2001 Accord. The 2001 Civic is the 4th most-recalled vehicle overall, only a Ford truck & two Ford vans have more.

I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY CIVIC AND I PISSED OFF SO MUCH. I BOUGHT AN AFTER MARKET CONVERTER AND TODAY I WENT TO GET MY CAR SMOGGED BUT DID NO PASS. RIGHT NOW I DONT COUNT WITH ANY MONEY TO REPLACE THE PART. I STILL HAVE THE ORIGINAL CRACKED PART AND I WANT TO ASK IF I GET THE CRACK WELDED, WOULD IT BE ABLE TO PASS THE TEST? THANK YOU FOR YOU HELP EVERYONE.

I WAS DRIVING HOME FROM WORK AND IT WAS RAINING. THE CAR ALL OF A SUDDEN SLOWLY DIDN'T WANT TO ACCELERATE AND THEN IT STOPPED. I SLOWLY PULLED UP INTO A STORE AND TURNED IT OFF. WHEN I TURNED IT BACK ON IT WORKED, BUT THE ENGINE LIGHT WAS ON. ON MY WAY HOME IT SEEMED AS IF IT WANTED TO STALL AGAIN BUT GOT ME HOME, AND THATS WHEN I CHECKED FOR THE CODE THAT READ P1361. SO I PURCHASED A USED MANIFOLD AND IT WAS WORKING PROPERLY SINCE TODAY WHEN I HAD PROBLEMS AND THIS TIME I THINK ITS THE TRANSMISSION.
