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.

problem #3

Civic LX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150,000 miles


Been driving with this problem for some time. Have no idea what may have caused it. The estimate from Honda dealer of over $400 per window is way above my budget.

Civic LX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 122,229 miles

One rainy day, I discovered my window wouldn't go up. I tried everything until I finally got it to go all the way up. Now, it slowly moves down and it won't go all the way up. I got an estimate and it will cost 125 per window. I'm thinking about it but its hard to get the time off and money doesn't grow on trees. They should make a car that lasts, it's 2013. I don't need it to fly, just need it to work properly.

problem #1

Jun 112012

Civic EX 1.7L

  • Manual transmission
  • 80,000 miles

When I had the regulator fixed it then turned into an internal switch in the car would not let the window auto down anymore which then made it so I had to pay to have that replaced too. It has landed my car in the shop for a total of 3 days with these issues and I am really getting tired of having to always fix things on this car.
