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.

Driver side visor failed while commuting to work on 2008 Honda Civic coupe ex, thereby obstructing my view of the road until I was able to get to a Honda dealership. The driver side visor failed due to the visor coming apart at the hing point. Three months later, the passenger side visor failed in the same way as the driver side visor, thus obstructing my view while driving until I made it to a Honda dealership.

Apparently a rock hit my A/C condenser after owning my 2008 Honda Civic hybrid for less than two months. It created a hole in the condenser and now the A/C doesn't work. Honda wants ~$600 to fix and they refuse to cover this under warranty. This is despite the extremely new nature of the car and how incredibly easy it was to locate many Honda owners with the exact same problem.

My 2007 Honda Civic hybrid has a damaged A/C condenser. According to the dealership a pebble punctured the condenser while driving, so all the freon leaked out and my ac doesn't work. The cost to repair it is $582. I went online and "goggled" this problem and found it has happened to many Honda cars and has to do with the placement of the condenser and the fact that Honda does nothing to protect or shield it from damage. I want my $582 back!
