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.

2006 Honda Civic Owner Comments

problem #2

Civic 4-cyl

  • 90,000 miles


I have a 2006 Honda Civic si. The trunk does not have a key entry to it and the wireless entry system was not working to open the trunk. Additionally, I was able to gain access to the trunk by removing the backseat and attempted to pull the emergency trunk release and the trunk will still not open. There has not been an accident nor any event which would have cause the trunk to not open. I went to a Honda dealer and they said that the latch was broken and that it would cost a total of $400 to fix. My concern is that if a child or someone accidentally gets locked in the trunk, there is no way that they would be able to get out unless the trunk is cut into. This defect seems like a safety issue and from reading online, it appears that this has happened to multiple Honda Civic si's. the other difference with this model is that the Civic si does not have a key entry to the trunk so there is no manual override (minus the emergency manual override which does not work).
