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.

The contact owns a 2007 Honda Civic hybrid. While driving approximately 35 mph merging on the interstate he engaged the accelerator pedal and suddenly the acceleration stopped. He also applied extreme pressure to the accelerator pedal but it felt like the acceleration did not increase. The rpms increased; however, the hybrid system was of no assistance. Before he merged onto the interstate he observed the battery pack had five bars. When he felt the acceleration stop, the power gauge dropped from 5 bars to 1 bar rapidly. The vehicle was taken to the dealer five times for the failure. The dealer has performed two software updates on the vehicle. The failure had occurred 6 times since the last software update. The dealer advised him that Honda was aware of the failure but does not have a fix and have refused to look at the vehicle. The failure mileage was 40,000 and the current mileage was 64,610.

The contact owns a 2007 Honda Civic hybrid. The contact was driving approximately 40 mph entering the highway from an on ramp when the engine began to lose power and the vehicle would not accelerate. The vehicle decelerated to 10 mph. The failure would occur intermittently. The manufacturer advised the contact to take the vehicle to the dealer for the replacement of the hybrid battery and reprogramming of the battery software. The contact stated that after the repair was performed, the failure recurred. The contact requested the original software to be installed in the vehicle however, neither the manufacturer nor the dealer would assist. The failure mileage was 60,000.

problem #1

Civic 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35 miles
When engine is warm and car is at idle (either when stopped at traffic light or when parking before shutdown) and you open/close sun roof and/or power windows the rpms dip, car shakes, and engine almost stalls before rpms recover to normal idle. This has happened at least two dozen times and started happening soon after taking delivery. At approx 400 miles car was taken into dealer and dealer was able to reproduce the problem on my vehicle and also reproduced the problem on other new Civics on dealer lot. Dealer reset PCM and performed idle relearn procedure. This did not resolve the problem. Dealer reported to Honda engineering and they had no knowledge of issue and offered no advice. Additionally at approx 600 miles after car sat unused all day and when attempting to start later that night, the car did not start on first attempt. On second attempt and after cranking longer than usual for startup, the car started roughly with a jolt and ran rough (car shaking) for 3-5 seconds.
