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.

problem #1

Civic 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • miles
The vehicle has a manual gearbox and the clutch pedal is very stiff to operate. This combined with a fairly long travel could require short divers to position their seat very close to the steering wheel in order to get enough leverage in their leg to fully depress the clutch pedal prior to staring the engine. The incident date is non-specific as this is an ongoing issue. I have raised my concern with the local dealer and was advised that they cannot reduce the stiffness of the clutch action or reposition the engine disconnect switch (so that the pedal does not need to be pressed to the floor).
