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.

Within the last year I have noticed a leak on the back side of the engine while changing oil in my wife's 2006 Civic. First time, the dealer told me it was a leaky oil pan gasket bolt which they tightened. This time I am told the power steering pump is leaking and will need to be replaced. The car is 18 months old with 51,000 miles on it. The Honda dealer is currently repairing the car for $470 by replacing the power steering pump. This should not be happening on a year this old!
