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.

My daughter had a front end collision on her 2006 Honda Civic with $7K in damages. The air bags didn't deploy. The body shop and insurance agent said it should have but the dealer said the impact wasn't hard enough.

My previous 2006 Honda Civic LX 2 door coupe was involved in a front and rear end crash and none of the airbags deployed. I was at a complete stop in traffic and was rear ended. The car in front and the car behind me both had their airbags deploy. The car behind rear ended me and then I hit the car in front of me and that car into another car in front of that and another car in front of that 5 cars involved. I contacted Honda Motors usa concerning this and they told me the reaction by my car was "normal" under the circumstances. My insurance totaled the vehicle. Only up until now did I know where and how to file a complaint. I feel this was an error and a failure of the vehicle. Luckily nobody was hurt in this accident.

The contact owns a 2006 Honda Civic ex. While driving approximately 45 mph he heard a loud popping noise, and then the front driver seat belt retractor system failed. Next the "air bag" warning light illuminated on the instrument panel. After turning off the engine the front driver side air bag deployed without warrant. However he noticed that the "side air bag turn off" warning light intermittently illuminated on the instrument control panel. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for inspection. The technician was unable to determine the cause of failure. The vehicle was inoperable and has not been repaired for the malfunction. The failure and current mileages were 66,000.

The contact owns a 2006 Honda Civic. While driving approximately 5 mph, the front passenger side air bag deployed without warning. After the failure occurred, none of the seat belts functioned. An investigator from her insurance company inspected the vehicle and stated that they would not assume responsibility because no damage was done to the vehicle to warrant the deployment. The dealer and manufacturer did not assist. The cause of the failure has not been determined and no remedy has been provided. The failure mileage was 15,888 and current mileage was 16,000.

2006 Honda Civic rear broke loose. Consumer spun out of control and hit the division wall. The consumer stated the passenger air bag deployed, but the driver side did not. The rear tires were worn and there was light snow on the ground which may have contributed to the consumer loosing control of the vehicle. Ohio traffic crash report # 10-0025-90.
