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.

Two years ago we went to the Honda dealership in cocoa Florida because our air conditioner was cutting out and then coming back on, and then cutting out. We purchased a $5 relay switch and problem stopped. A year later it started again, we got another relay switch and problem stopped again, now a year later it happened again, we got a new relay and it did not correct issue. Today I came online and find out it is a known issue however there does not appear to be a recall. Why not? the past year has been awful with this car. We had to get a rental car for a week because Honda painted most of the car because there was a recall. We still have places that should have been repainted but Honda refused. Then we were traveling on the expressway and the car started overheating, we found out it was another known issue, the block cracked and again we had to get a rental car because my husband and I both work and our Civic is our only transportation. We bought it because we had been told Honda Civics are awesome reliable etc. Now, the air issue. I have had enough.
