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.

A/C stopped working on my 2005 Honda Civic. Brought it to dealership and they said a rock hit condenser and caused the freon to leak. $900 to fix and it is not covered under my extended warranty.

My mom just bought me a 2005 Honda Civic about 6 weeks. My A/C was not blowing out cold air so it was taken to the Honda dealer ship and I found out that a pebble had hit the A/C condenser causing a leak. And its not covered under warranty. It is going to cost me about 700 dollars. Its a design flaw. I was researching on line about this happening to anyone else and there are alot. Honda should cover the cost of a new A/C condenser because of there design flaw.

The air conditioning (A/C) in the 2005 Honda Civic vp stopped working. When I went to the Honda dealership I was told that the A/C condenser in the car had a pin hole caused by a rock. I was also informed that although the part was covered by warranty it was voided by the rock. The dealership has quoted the repairs at $813. The car was only 2 years old.
