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.

2007 Civic hybrid with 46000 mi, the ima btry is very weak, and Honda refuses to honor their 80000 mi warranty. For the 1st two years the mileage was 51.3 mpg. Now it has dropped to 39 - 42 mpg, and the ima battery rarely boosts the car during acceleration. This is dangerous when entering an interstate hwy, and even pulling out of my housing development onto the 45 mph road beside us. Engine rarely stops when stopped at a traffic light, which it used to do all of the time. Both local Honda dealer and Honda of America say they cannot replace battery until the computer gives a code saying it needs to be replaced. Thus I paid several thousand dollars extra for a car that does not save much gas and is unsafe to drive. If I drive locally with no A/C, the ima system will show 6 or 7 squares of charge when I park it. When I start the car the next day, the charge will drop to 1 - 3 squares in the approx 1 block to the entrance to my housing development, driving at 15 mph. Then, when I stop at the stop sign and try to accelerate to 45 mph to blend into the traffic I have no boost from the hybrid system. Last Monday I almost got run over by a semi while trying to accelerate up to 60 mph when entering the interstate hwy. This car is no longer safe to drive!

The ima system on my 2007 Honda Civic hybrid goes through what I call a discharge cycle mostly in warmer weather. This culminates in lose of all ima functions. I my case this lose is brief. It however make the operation of the vehicle erratic. Honda has made no real attempt to get to the bottom.of this problem. Honda should buy this vehicle back at full retail value since it will be difficult to sell. I my state if I pursued this in small claims court I could be entitled to three times the damage.
