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.

I have had my 2005 Honda Civic for less then 5 months and I have already had to replace my A/C condenser once in May 08 and I have to do it again 6/08. It cost me about 500 to 600 dollars to fix this because of a design flaw. This is not my fault I don't drive like a crazy person. This is a flaw in the design and Honda should pay for it.
