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 #2

Sep 042008


  • miles


The contact owns a 2003 Honda Civic. The contact noticed that the front passenger side tire lost complete tire pressure. Several weeks later, the rear passenger side tire lost pressure because the valve stem cracked. He identified the location of the failure as being between the rubber and the steel rim. The contact called national tire and battery (where the tires were purchased) and was informed that they could not assume any responsibility unless they received authorization from the corporate office. The contact never received notification of a recall that would enable him to take preventive measures in avoiding potential failures. He had to assume financial responsibility for the replacement of the tires. The serial number and part number of the valve stems were unknown. The failure and current mileages were 79,107. Updated 11/10/08 updated 11/13/08.
