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

I put the car in reverse to back-up because a parked car was in front of me, 2-3 car lengths. However, the car went forward instead of reverse and to make the situation worse, I was on the downslope of a hill. My car went forward and the motor shut-off. The engine light came on and so did all the other lights on the instrument cluster. I pushed the brake pedal, but it didn't work. I put the car in park and tried to start it, while rolling, but nothing. My son grabbed the emergency brake and stopped the car. He saved us. I went to Honda car dealer 2 days later and asked the technician check why..but the technician said driver was not properly operation the car and driver must do something incorrectly. Reject to check for me, nothing they can do for this situation.
