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.

problem #1

Nov 152007

Civic 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 60 miles


My 2008 Honda Civic si drive-by-wire throttle keeps the accelerator pedal depressed for a couple of seconds after the accelerator pedal was released. This has caused two near crashes in the first week that I owned the vehicle. I now keep the car parked in the garage due to safety concerns. Honda has refused to address this issue for the thousands of Civic si owners. The Honda Civic si's should be recalled as soon as possible.
