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 Honda Civic Owner Comments

Inadvertently bumped into curbing while making a turn. Side wall of left front tire pierced, and plastic bumper moved. Bumper easily snapped back into place, tire replaced, and alignment checked. No damage except that seat belt failed in fully extended position after actuation with sudden stopping. Honda refused to honor warranty despite vehicle with less than 10,000 miles and two months old. Car is 2007 Honda Civic hybrid. In small claims court Honda argued successfully that the seat belt system functioned per design; that a "pre-tensioning system" is part of the design and is intended to prevent premature activation of air bag. I contend that any system that is designed to malfunction to prevent actuation of another system defies good design practice. I am a small person (135 lbs.) and the abrupt stop occurred at low speed. The impulse of the stop should not have been sufficient to cause failure of the system.
