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.

2003 Honda Civic Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 012008

Civic LX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 49,785 miles


I brought my daughter a 2003 Honda Civic LX for her 18 birthday on April 2007.

The car is pretty reliable and runs good, however, can't say the same for gas. Strangely, on February 2008, my daughter took her car to Lukeoil(Rochelle Park, NJ) for

gas, put $20(cash) of gas and for some reason her car stalled 5 minutes later. After having it serviced she was told that her gas tank was filled 50/50 with gas and water.

I'm wondering if there's a problem with the car itself or what's it the gas station. If anyone had this peculiar problem, please let me know.
