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.

New 2005 Honda Civic XL special addition 4-door sedan purchased from Honda of fort myers 7-21-05. Almost immediately after purchase malfunction light on the dash indicating a problem with the emission control system began to light up. It was on all the time. The manual stated that you should go to the dealer immediately and have it checked if this happens as continued operation may cause serious damage to the vehicle. We had the car in the shop on 4 different occasions 8-20-05, 8-30-05, 12-22-06, 5-9-07. The light would go out for 2-3 days after being worked on in the shop and come back on. This has been an extreme source of frustration and concern. The car has developed an additional symptom of stumbling and losing power when trying to blend into traffic. We have just lived with this thinking "well, what can we do". but I'm convinced that someone, somewhere knows what to do to fix this. I am going to make it my project to work toward that end. Thanks for any assistance you may be able to offer. If we could get a factory representative to show up at the dealer to get them to fix it, that would be great.
