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 Owner Comments

My 2006 Honda Civic si has an issue with "hanging revs" that even after the release of the gas pedal the rpms seems to stay steady for 1-2 seconds. The inability of the dbw system will eventually lead to early clutch failure, also there is surging and jerking in 1st-2nd gear. I must say that it makes me very nervous to drive because I can't predict what the car will do. The car also seems to have a notchy, stiff, and grinding 3rd gear that won't seem to go away even with recommended fluid.
