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: Yes, the Honda Civic receives a lot of complaints because so many were sold. And sure, car parts only last so long and things eventually break. But it's never good to see this many transmission complaints, especially when the average mileage at failure is just north of 100,000 miles.

Especially when you consider that it's predecessor also has a nasty history with transmission complaints.

The SRS light is activated and requires a visit to the dealer to re-activate the SRS system if a cell phone is left on the front passenger seat. Per the dealer, the cell phone interferes with the SRS sensors that measure seat vs seatback pressure and tells the system to shut off. Additionally, if a small package is placed on the front seat, the SRS deactivates - which is fine, but it may remain deactivated after the package is removed.
