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

Civic 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 9,336 miles


I noticed my 2003 Honda Civic ex fp with 9,388 miles on it leaning towards the front left. Measured the distance between tires and wheel well rim and found there was a 1 to 1/12 inch difference between that rim and the remaining 3 tire rims. Brought the car in to the dealer and was advised that there was a "coil spring problem" the part has been discontinued and it is unknown when the vehicle will be repaired.
