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.

I was driving my 2007 Honda Civic si coupe at approximately 10-20mph. Without warning my passenger side airbags deployed (2 airbags in total). The airbag deployment was loud, shocked me, and filled my car with smoke. I initially thought I was hit; however no cars were on my passenger side or able to hit me. I pulled over and there was no damage to my car (other than the inside where the airbags now deployed). My airbag light was not on prior to deployment. There was no sort of impact and absolutely no indication/reason the airbags should have deployed. If someone was sitting on my passenger side, they could have been seriously injured. If the driver airbags deployed, I could have been seriously injured and/or possibly caused an accident. This is a dangerous and very concerning malfunction that could have resulted in a lot worse.

The VIN number on my daughter's 2007 Civic coupe does not bring up a recall to replace the airbag. Why" does this mean that there is no danger of metal shards exploding out of the airbag? I called american Honda's consumer information dept. They checked my VIN and said that there was no airbag recall. I asked why there was no recall and was told that Honda does not always put the same brand of airbag in all of their vehicles. Is this true"

4/10/14 picked up my car from a body shop referred by victory Honda drove a couple of blocks turned left 3 to 4 seconds after the turn my drivers side airbag and the airbag in the side of my seat deployed at the same time without collision at the same time. Causing a continual ringing in my ear. Took car back to body shop they took my car back to victory Honda and told them I hit a curb. Victory Honda, Honda of America, and the insurance company for the body shop are all sticking to that story. I did not hit anything and now I am forced to drive an unsafe vehicle as the seat belts and the remaining airbags are all disconnected. Thank you for your time.

I took my 2007 Honda Civic to the dealership to inquire about my SRS light, I was told that the cause was dtc 32-10, intermittent connection in floor harness. And that this was not covered by warranty. I have researched online and seen others with the same issue. It seems there is design flaw in the SRS system. I have also found a service bulletin number: Sb-10-001 this seems like safety issue that should be covered by an extended warranty. Thank you for your time.

I am having a serious issue with water leaking in through my side curtain driver side air bag when it rains. I spoke to two different dealerships and they want to take apart my whole car and both also said completely different things. It apparently is not covered under my warrant because it is a water leak but that is unfair. It is most likely destroying my air bag and that is a safety concern. Honda corporate told me they have never heard of such an issue and that their hands are tied.

I was advised by Honda North in clovis, ca, to replace the opds sensor and the opds control unit which should have removed the air bag warning light. It did not! I spent $697.87 for this repair at visalia Honda only to be told they could not reset the air bags. I was then told the SRS control unit needed to be replaced in order to reset the air bags. The quoted cost to replace the SRS control unit was $450. Also, I was told by visalia Honda's service manager, [xxx], that they had no way of determining why the warning light was coming so repairs were being made in some kind of pecking order. The SRS control unit was replaced with american Honda providing the part while I paid $221.54 for the labor. The warning light came on again in August 2014 at which time I was told by visalia Honda that the cable reel had intermittent failure and needed to be replaced at a cost of $413. The cable reel has not been replaced. I have noticed many others having the same safety issues with their 2007 Civic but yet american Honda refuses to recall the vehicles.

Honda Civic LX 2 door coupe. My wife and I were driving on quiet residential street looking at homes. Going slow - estimate10-12 mph - we had just been at a complete stop looking at a house. Foot was on brake - going down slight hill. Approached two metal sewer covers in middle of road - one in front of the other. Middle of car went over first cover and I pressed brake harder because road was more uneven then appeared and car sits alittle low to ground. Was about to go over second cover and passenger side airbags deployed with a load explosion. When I opened my eyes, I saw smoke and thought car was on fire. Wife was holding right arm, said it was broken (it wasn't). It took a while to realize what happened. I inspected bottom of car and engine compartment. I saw no damage and started the car - not sure if I shut it off or happened automatically. Driver seat belt was locked in position. Passenger seat belt worked. Car ran and operated normally. Airbags caused a lot of interior damage. I took pictures of road and sewer covers from different angles. While the car was between the two sewer covers, I felt a vibration come up the steering wheel. Wife felt and heard nothing. I suspect bottom of car hit edge of second cover because it's slightly elevated. Although there were no marks on asphalt pavement or metal cover. My questions are: * why did airbags deploy" why did they deploy at this speed? why only the passenger airbags? why did seat belts lock on driver side and not passenger side" I've called Honda dealership twice. No replies. Insurance inspected. Car is in Honda shop for repairs. I asked shop to provide any information on the computer at time of deployment.
