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: 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.

2002 Honda Civic Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 012002

Civic LX 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10 miles


I've owned several Hondas and always have been satisfied. Their reliability, resale value economy, handling and cutting edge technology kept me as a customer. They've always had road noise but this 2002 Civic is unbearable. Impossible to listen to the stereo. Friends who have an Odyssey recently traded for a Toyota Sienna because of the road noise. Another friends CRV is impossible to carry on a conversation in the back seat. A lot of cars have road noise but this Civic is the worst. The local dealer has no solution.
