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.

I bought my 2006 Honda Civic ex coupe brand new in November 2005, problems started to occur shortly afterwards for instance the airbag light had a malfunction and recalled the dealer didn't fix it the first time, very inconvenient, brake pedal was fixed before I bought the vehicle, there was a recall on that as well because could fall off and cause a crash. I have taken it in to Honda service to get problems fixed and numerous times, been told that its normal or some other "!@#$% they always gave me the run around, the service people are rude, mean and incompetent and ignorant. I have taken my 06 Civic in a total of 8-10 times now to fix problems they never fix anything! interior trim is poor/poor altering from the factory, panels loose and popping out interior scratches too easily/fragile cheaply made "!@#$% (still), front drivers seat wont retract all the way back anymore like it used to (new) weather stripping is lifting up by front windshield (still) various rattles from interior (still), undercoating/under body spray from factory is peeling completely off (new) door panel flexes and rpms rise when using windows/now seems to roll up/down slower than before (still/new) keep in mind im only at 11,000 miles too! Honda and Toyota quality is going downhill very fast especially with the Civic, CRV, rdx, MDX, Camry, Tundra, highlander, landcruiser, yaris, and rav4. The last year before the redesign of these vehicles the quality was great, now it seems like Honda and Toyota are either teaming up together or competing to see who can make the cheapest and ?!@#$% vehicle with cheaply made materials and taking shortcuts, changed a suppliers or something, these problems are unacceptable for a new vehicle.

- the contact owns a 2006 Honda Civic coupe. While driving at 60 mph the contact's vehicle crashed into the rear of a vehicle in the emergency lane. Neither the driver's front nor the passenger's front air bags deployed. However, the passenger's side air bag did deploy.

The car is a new Honda Civic LX with less than 650 miles on the odometer. When I am a passenger in the front seat, the airbag system warning indicator light comes on. We took it to the dealer at 400+ miles and was told it was caused by electronic instrument interference - possibly a cell phone. The fault code was cleared and the light went out. However, the problem remains - only when I am a passenger in the front seat the airbag warning light turns on. I am a 6'3" mail and weigh 300 lbs. Smaller, lighter people do not seem to cause the warning light to register. I strongly suspect there is a manufacturing defect with an airbag sensor in the front passenger seat. I consider this a major safety defect.
