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.

2005 Honda Civic Owner Comments

Unwanted and unintended acceleration occurred while driving Honda Civic hybrid car on the buckhorn mountain road West of fort collins Colorado. The car was only stopped by applying brute force with all my weight to the brakes. Fortunately I was able to get the car stopped on one of the few straight stretches on this narrow, gravel road. The engine raced at its highest speed. I was able to get it into park and turned off, before it caught fire. It would not return to normal idle speed, even after I restarted the engine a couple of time. We ended up leaving the car on the road and it was eventually returned to town. The shop was not able to duplicate the situation, but I am worried after reading about the Toyota problems which sound similar. The shop has replaced the accelerator cable and floor mats, thinking it might be a similar situation. No one is allowed to drive the car out of town into the mountains. I am concerned because the problem suddenly occurred and could have caused a fatal accident just a few miles further on this road. I currently own and drive a 2005 prius, so I am familiar with driving a hybrid car. The Honda is a government car driven by a number of drivers each day. I am not sure of the year, but I can check that out.
