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.

Driver's seat began to move while driving the vehicle. Took car to dealer who reported seat bushing are worn already. Car has only been driven 10K km ( 6K miles). Parts are back ordered so seat is still loose. A potential problem if invovled in collision before seat is repaired. Honda issued SB624365 back in July 2001 for a similiar complaint, as yet no sb for 2004 model year issued.

My fiance has been involved in two rear-end collisions, both in Honda Civics, over the last year (the last accident happened on 11/12/04), and in both cases, the driver's seat back broke so that she was thrown back at a greater angle than one would have expected. The first accident required her to have a painful back operation, with various vertebrates being fused. This cannot be a coincident that her seat back broke on both occasions.
