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

Civic DX 1.7L

When making a sharp turn or backing up to the left I have a popping noise coming from the front right wheel. I've taken it to Honda and they claim they can hear no noise. I've made another appointment that isn't for another week, but they actually want me to take them for a drive in it. The noise wasn't happening often, but now it happens constantly and sometimes it feels as though it slips when turning. It seems to happen when there is any weight being put into a turn on the right wheel. This is annoying, even worse is they try and make you feel as though you're nuts when they claim they can't hear the noise.

Just when it was hot, everytime the steering wheel was turned it would sweak. They replaced something, problem's not come back.
