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.

The contact owns a 2009 Honda Civic hybrid. When the contact attempted to merge into traffic, the vehicle would not accelerate. He avoided crashing several times. He took the vehicle to the dealer and they stated that the battery was weak, thus preventing the vehicle from receiving the needed electrical connection. The diagnostic results did not register a specific code; therefore, the dealer stated that there was nothing wrong with the vehicle. The VIN and speed were unknown. The failure and current mileages were 14,000.
