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.

2010 Honda Civic Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 062010

Civic 4-cyl

  • 400 miles


The contact leased a 2010 Honda Civic LX. The contact stated that when he depressed the brake pedal, the vehicle surged forward and accelerated. The failure occurred intermittently. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer three times but the dealer was unable to fix the problem. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer a fourth time and the dealer stated that he was depressing the brake pedal and accelerator pedal at the same time which caused the sudden acceleration. The contact believed that the two pedals being so close to one another was a design flaw and safety hazard. The contact called the manufacturer who offered no assistance. The current mileage was 3,843. The failure mileage was approximately 400. Updated 01/04/11 the consumer belived the brake pedal was designed too close to the accelerator pedal. Updated 01/07/11
