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.

2004 Honda Civic Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 012010

Civic EX 1.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 78,000 miles


I had to replace the compressor, drier, expansion valve, condenser and all the o-rings. In order to get to the expansion valve you have to take the dash board out. I also had to have a mechanic recharge it for me and not to mention flush the system. Unfortunately this car is only a 2004 and she bought it brand new. Obviously Honda has issues with their A/C Systems and failed to let their consumer's know. I work in this line of business and there are more Honda's with this type of problem on the road than any other car. But when I back up and look at the entire situation, it could be worse she could be driving a Prius with no brakes.
