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.

[xxx] assembled in Canada purchased as a new vehicle. 2003 Honda Civic ex model I purchased this vehicle in 2003 as a new vehicle. I have purchased a service contract and the vehicle came with a manufacturers warranty. The manufacturer or the dealer will honor the warranty for the list of problems reported. Brakes leaked fluid and was in the shop more than 6 times. Brakes had to be floored from the original date of pick up from dealer ( March 2003) a letter 11 pages long was sent to manufacturer making them aware of the all the gauges on the dash board that malfunction. The speedometer gets stuck on 30 mph, the fuel gauge sometimes gives a reading of 3/4 tank full when there is no fuel. I am not able to tell what speed I am traveling and especially at nights I am not able to tell if the vehicle was placed in reverse or neutral because the lights from these specific parts don't work. The problem is not with the fuse because there is a problem with the wiring. The connection has to be taken off the battery to get these components to work again. I am not a mechanic and don't have time for all these problems. I have received points on my drivers license for speeding. These problems were reported more than a year ago and the manufacturer failed to find a solution to the problems. Everytime I call I get treated like a second class citizen when all I am asking for is a safe vehicle to drive in. I have every reason to be concerned with my life and other motorists lives. Honda of nanuet checked the gauges and told me they are under investigation. At this point in time I should be given my money back.
