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.

Rear tires on new Honda Civic LX 2008 began thumping and shaking at 12000 miles and kept getting worse until 15K, so I took it to the dealer. Honda dealer said the "C" arms that corrected the problem with 2007 Civics were installed in my car, and the problem may be because I did not have tires rotated. (?) they wanted $381 for tires and alignment with only 9 months and 15K miles of new car use.

I purchased a new car Honda Civic hybrid 2008 and at 6000 miles had to have all four tires replaced due to cupping. Honda realigned all four and paid for tires. After another 6000 miles, I had all four tires worn down again. This time I did not hear from Honda after filing a complaint. I took to another Honda repair shop & they suggested rebalance & rotate.

My 2008 Honda Civics LX, had my first tire rotation completed by my dealer and was told that all 4 tires were cupped. I have not owned the car a year. I purchased this car 05-31-08. I have less than 11,000 miles on this car. The car now vibrates and roars when driving down the street. The 2006-7 Civics had problems with the rear suspension which caused the cupping damage to the tires. I have the same problem and the dealer said it was due to lack of rotation. They have serviced the car since owned and never said there was any problem with the tires. Two weeks after my last service all tires are damaged and the car shakes when driving. It is very loud and feels unstable on the ground. The dealer has yet to take action to resolve this case.

I have a 2008 Honda Civic with only 18,000 miles on the Bridgestone turanza el 400. Tires. I noticed that the rear tires were getting very loud and then had them rotated to the front, which made the front of the car vibrate from the thumping so much that I had to replace the tires. I took the car into D'ella Honda of queensbury, NY and they advised that the tires were cupped and that this was my fault. Did not want to hear any more about it and D'ella will not respond to me. I also advised that going down the highway and hitting wet pavement the car would slip on the pavement. Really just a unsafe tire. Having to replace tires from a new car at 18000 miles is total bull. Either the tires or the Honda Civic still have a problem in 2008. No help from Honda, D'ella Honda or Bridgestone. Will stay away from all three in the future. $600 for new tires so far.

At 13000 miles my rear tires on a 4 month old car were so worn, (flat spots) that in the near future I feel they would be a future road hazard possibly causing an accident or death. In my little bit of research on internet this is a on going problem for years. Dealer replaced my back tires after several trips to different repair, tire shops. Even when some shops put it in writing that excessive wear was due to mechanical failure they still said nothing wrong with car. I have a feeling I'll be back to dealer before 5000 mi more for same thing. This is truly and unsafe situation for people when if they listen to dealer and they tell them nothings wrong when clearly something is causing the uneven wear.
