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.

Trunk latch suddenly failed. There is no keyhole on the exterior trunk, and the fob and interior switch can't open it. The seat releases are also in the trunk, so there is no way to fix the problem without going to the dealer, and they want to charge for the repair even though there are multiple pages of complaints on the web about the problem that date back to 2008. I can't get to my spare tire or any of my other emergency equipment.

1. not sure of any event that led to failiure 2. driver's side sun visor will not stay in the flipped up position - the visor has a split in the center - I.e. the center has expanded - so this split precludes it from staying in the flipped up position. 3 3 have not yet replaced, but must replace as it is a visbility safety hazard.

A screw holding in place the trunk sensor broke into two pieces and we could not open the trunk, either with the cable release or the fob. There are two approximately 1/16 inch wide screws holding the trunk sensor in place so that it can open the trunk on command from the fob or cable release system. This vehicle has not ben in an accident nor has it been jarred violently in any way. This screw breaking in two pieces happened during normal use.there is no key release system to lower the back support section of the rear seats nor is there a rear lock to enter the trunk.so, to fix the problem, my mechanic had to remove enough bolts to enter from behind the rear seat. Had a child been locked in the trunk, it would have taken at least an hour to extracate him or her. Thank-you!

I have a Honda Civic 2006 (lease) this car has 2 recall one on 8/30/07 and on 11/07 but the dealer never sent me any warning, note, letter or call to notify this situation, I read that by fed law they should contact me and let me know the ricks that this issue can cause me. I called because I had a problem with my car keys code and they told about this and they said sorry because they do not know why I was not notify about this I very disappointed because that is very dangerous and I do not get notify at all, I had 3 cars with the Honda all 3 are lease cars so it is not excuse that they cannot contact me also I am living T the same place for more than one year and I got my Honda bill every month.
