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

Feb 122009


  • 45 miles
The contact owns a 2009 Honda Civic. While driving 10 mph, the contact struck another vehicle on the driver's side. She does not know how the front driver's side tire detached from her vehicle after striking the other vehicle from a right angle. The entire front end came off of the contact's vehicle and it was unable to be driven. The vehicle was towed from the scene and a police report was filed. There were no injuries. The dealer advised her to have the vehicle towed to them so it can be repaired. The failure mileage was 45.
