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 engine died while driving. Customer states that the engine stalled and it was the dealers fault for when she had an oil change and they forgot to put oil in it. The consumer stated there were two more incidents where the engine slowed and was very sluggish and the vehicle had to be towed back to the dealer. The consumer stated the driver's side window was not closing properly, the rear passenger door seal was coming apart, the brakes, rear door weather strip, and tail light were all replaced.

Premature disc brake pad wear on 2006 Honda Civic at 12,525 miles. Dealer says worn to metal. Claims normal wear is 10,000-18,000 miles. This is unheard of! suspect sub-standard pads installed during manufacturing and an increasing lack of overall quality controls at Honda.

I purchased a new 2006 Honda Civic LX on 3/18/06. On 8/31/06 after 15,658 highway miles, the driver's side inner front brake pad wore out and ruined the rotor. I replaced the rotor, pad, and caliper with original Honda parts. My daughter has complained that this car's braking is "unstable". now at 34,000 miles the front inner pads are worn to metal again. The outer pads and rear shoes are still very serviceable. I called the dealer and Honda and they both fail to admit a problem or offer a solution. I think this car's brakes have a design flaw that causes the front inner pads to wear out prematurely. And I think this flaw also causes unstable braking. I have the car and the old parts for inspection.
