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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

On my 2009 Honda Civic that is only five months old right around 20,000 miles I noticed a vibration in the rear end. This vibration got worse quickly. At 20,560 I had the tires looked at and both tires have good tread left but have excessive cupping in a diagonal pattern the same as the 06/07 tsb. I took the car to the dealer I bought the car from. The service dept stated that there was no tsb or recall and that they could check the alignment but it was out of warranty at 12,000 miles (meaning I would be charged) and even though Honda sold me the car with these tires on it they did not produce the tires and they were not covered under any warranty. NHTSA needs to assist consumers by looking into this (numerous posting on other internet sites) before owners ignore this problem and someone is killed by the tire failure due to a problem in the rear end.

The contact owns a 2009 Honda Civic. While driving 20 mph the vehicle began vibrating in the rear. The contact noticed that there was cupping in the tire tread which caused the vehicle to vibrate. A local tire shop replaced the rear tire. The dealer checked the entire rear-end of the vehicle for damage; however, nothing was broken. The dealer requested that a manufacturers representative inspect the vehicle; yet, this has not occurred. The contact had the identical failure on a 2006 Civic and the dealer stated that failure was caused by a loose bushing which caused unusual tire wear. The contact stated that this is a major manufacturers defect. The current mileage was 16,000 and the failure mileage was 15,000.

I was driving West bound on I-84 in danbury ct, in the left hand lane. It felt as if I had hit something. The car veered into the guardrail, the left front tire was ripped off the car, I was able to maneuver the vehicle to the right hand side of the highway - break down lane. I felt heat under my seat, I immediately got out of the vehicle, with in 3 - 5 minutes the car was full engulfed in flames.
