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

Oct 012008

Civic Hybrid

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


The IMA battery starting not charging all the way and my gas milage dropped from 44MPG to 39.7MPG. The dealership said that I have until May 2009 on the warranty so I could bring it any time before then and have it replaced. I currently have 110,000 miles on the vehicle and what to get the battery replaced. The dealership is now telling me that it is out of warranty and they want $4,000+ to replace it. Everything I have read indicated that in California I should have up to 150,000 miles on the warranty. I can't get a straight answer out of the dealership and Honda will not respond to me. Any suggestions?
