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 have a 2007 Honda Civic ex with 43K miles on it. Recently my SRS light came on. I went to the dealership I purchased the new car from and they diagnosed it and said I needed to replace my passenger side airbag. I find this absurd since the car is 3 years old and to top it off, I missed the warranty by 6K miles. I had the repair done because I failed my safety inspection and the cost was $595, not including the $89 fee to diagnose it. I've done some research on this problem and have noticed a slew of customer complaints with very similar problems.

On 2/2009 I was rear ended in my 2007 Honda Civic si during a low speed accident (5mph) the repairs completed were a new rear bumper cover and paint by a Honda dealer body shop. About 11 months later the airbag light would flick on and off on the dash. During warranty repair work to 3rd gear issues (1/2010) that I've now had multiple times, I asked that Honda look into the airbag light. They replaced what they said was a bad sensor in the rear bumper. 5 months later, on 6/22/2010 during the 3rd gear issue being fixed again, the airbag light was randomly coming on again. Once more, I asked that Honda look into this. They informed me that it was a faulty sensor again and they would have to replace it, if that didn't work, they would need to replace a flooring harness. All airbag sensor work done has been paid for by the insurance company involved in the accident on 2/2009. On 7/30/2010 while driving home from work, the side impact and side curtain airbags deployed on the driver's side, causing damage to the inside of the vehicle and minor injuries to myself (jaw pain, sore ribs, and ear ache) luckily, I was able to maintain control of the vehicle and pull over in a safe location. After talking to multiple people, I was advised to report this incident to the NHTSA.

I collided with an SUV. Both cars were proceeding from a full stop and probably weren't doing more than 15 mph. Although the passenger side air bag deployed, it was so slow that if there had been a passenger the bag would have been completely useless. Although the other driver's insurance paid for the repair, the cost of my repair alone came to some 4 thousand dollars, I'm told mostly due to the cost of the air bag. What's the point of a useless air-bag that costs the earth to repair and deploys so slowly as to do nothing to prevent injury in the event of an accident?

On Wednesday, June 11, 2008 I was driving from Mar vista, ca to san leandro, ca with my 4 year old son and 20 year old sister in law. We were on the 580 w driving in the far left lane at 65mph at 11:30 am when we heard an explosion in the rear of the car. The car began veering toward the right. I tried to pull over into the emergency lane, but the car keep veering toward the right and we hit the center divide. The car was perpendicular to the divide. The air bags did not deploy. We were probably traveling at 45mph when we hit the center divide. I am very concerned that the airbags did not deploy. My car is a 2007 Honda Civic coupe ex and it had about 8300 miles. I purchased the car in July 2007. The crash caused significant damage to the front left side of my car. The car is now at a body shop and is being repaired in san leandro, ca.
