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.

On Friday, July 31, 2015 I brought my 2005 Honda Civic ex [which was in good working condition with no SRS or mil lights on] to Honda of kingston on broadway to be serviced on August 1st for the takata air bag recall. When I picked up my car on Monday, August 3rd they told me everything went well and that they had also performed a "complimentary inspection" of my tires, breaks, fluids etc. -- something they never informed me they planned on doing, something I would have never consented to in the first place. They also failed to inform me that my SRS light was now on, and what that means. I pulled over on my way home to call and inquire about the light and they told me they could not fit me in until Thursday, August 6th to diagnose it. Driving home, my car began shaking and rattling and became almost impossible to drive. I brought it to the nearest available mechanic who discovered the lug nuts on the front left tire were not secured properly by the technicians at Honda of kingston, and it was close to falling off. They fixed and secured the tire for me and I notified Honda of the incident. They agreed to pay the cost of securing the tire, however they informed me that diagnosing my SRS light will cost me $107, and depending on what the issue is, could cost a few hundred to a thousand more. I've never had any issues with the air bag system or the SRS light, until it was serviced by Honda of kingston. The SRS light obviously indicates that the airbag recall work was not performed correctly, and now the dealer is attempting to charge me to repair it. Not only could I have crashed due to the negligence of the technicians and their inability to even secure a tire properly, but my SRS would not have deployed the airbag, even though I was assured when I left with my car that everything went well and my car was in good shape.

My Honda Civic began to shake while driving at any speed higher than 35mph, the rear tires are bald. The mechanic I took it to said the wheels could not hold the alignment and suggested adding a part to hold the tires in alignment and to allow for tightening of the alignment.

1) since I bought the car in 2005 (new), periodically the anti-lock brake system kicks in for no apparent reason (while I am braking, of course). 2) under the above situation, as well as at other times when the antilock brakes kick in, I cannot get the ABS to disengage no matter what I do, until the car has reached a complete stop. 3) intermittently, the antilock brake system, when it kicks in, the car will take an exceedingly long, very very exceedingly long time to stop. Very exceeding long. At almost all these times, I was already going very slowly toward a stop sign, stoplight or approaching an intersection to turn. It seems that the wheels lock up and the car just slides. As a result of #3, I have run innumerable stop signs, a few stop lights, the other night I almost hit a car head on, missed the turnoff to my street by almost 200 feet, missed my driveway by about 100 feet. This was on snowy, wet slushy roads. But, I will tell you when approaching the intersections and turns, I could not have been going slower without being at almost a dead standstill. It is very fortunate that in each case there was no accident. But, the dealership tells me that is the way the ABS system works, there is nothing wrong with it and nevertheless they cannot reproduce the problem. Has anyone else reported this problem? I have contacted Honda corporation, checked for bulletins, etc. And I find nothing. I do not believe antilock brakes are supposed to work like this.
