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.

2008 Honda Civic Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 042008

Civic 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,700 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Honda Civic. While driving 35 mph, the contact heard a howling noise coming from the front end of the vehicle. He took the vehicle to the tire shop to have the tires rotated, which did not remedy the issue. The contact went to the dealer and they test drove the vehicle. The dealer stated that the wheel bearing was defective and failed. The wheel bearing was replaced on the passenger side; however, the contact was informed that the wheel bearing on the driver side was also defective and needed to be replaced. The dealer ordered the second bearing for the driver's side repair. The manufacturer had not been notified. The current mileage was approximately 5,900 and failure mileage was approximately 5,700.
