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.

2009 Honda Civic Owner Comments

The driver's side airbag deployed while driving about five miles per hour in downtown philadelphia. No impact happened, no pothole was hit. The Honda place where I lease the car is blaming it on a 4 inch square piece of asphalt stuck somewhere under the car. That did not happen when the airbag depolyed. My insurance company has filed a claim and will examine the car.

I was the driver of a 2009 Honda Civic ex coupe. I was at a red light and I had came to a complete stop and I got rear ended and pushed into the vehicle in front of me very hard to the point where my insurance company even declared my vehicle a total loss. I have neck injuries and possibly soft tissue injuries from the impact of how I was hit (whiplash). I am going to therapy (chiropractor and physical therapy because I am in alot of pain every day. The air bags did not deploy/ and my husband who was the passenger got hurt too.
