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.

Consumer's 2004 Civic pulled left. Accelerator would not engage when depressed and the vehicle would make a sudden jump. The vehicle was taken to the dealer but the were unable to determine the cause of the problem. The consumer also experienced problems with the vehicle's stereo and gear system. The dealer repair the loose wire but the stereo's sound is affected when the vehicle hits bumps in the road. The consumer was told that the gear shift was replaced. The rubber seal on the windshield popped up. The paint on the back fender started to flake. The brake began to make noise even after the vehicle was parked.

At approximatly 3pm, Sunday afternoon, I washed my Honda Civic hybrid. When the cold water hit the front windshield the windshield cracked from top to bottom. The Honda dealer examined the crack the following week and did not find any stone damage. But, the factory rep indicates that since there is 33,000 miles on teh car and it is more than one year old, Honda will not pay for any replacement. I feel that this is a design flaw and not he result of prior damage.
