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

I bought my Honda Civic ex in 2003 from lute riley Honda of richardson. Not long after buying it, maybe 6 months, a small crack in the windshield on the driver's side was noticed incidentally, although no debris hitting the windshield was noted. The crack extends all the way from the bottom edge of the windshield, and since I haven't attended to the crack due to job schedule, it now extends up more than half the length of the glass. No point of impact crater has ever been noticed anywhere on the windshield. Multiple incidents have been cited here on this NHTSA complaints as to their similar windshield crack experience. I was prompted to look into this NHTSA website complaints list when I noticed that many friends/relatives who purchased Honda Civics over the last 4-5 years were having a windshield crack develop in the same location as mine. I am quite willing to have a Honda dealer verify the lack of point of impact so that they cannot explain away this incidence as some ficititous debris hitting the windshield, especially in the face of similar complaints here.
