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 2011 Honda Civic. The contact was driving 10 mph and attempting a turn when the vehicle stalled and slipped out of gear. The contact stated that the gear engaged back into the correct position independently. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer for a diagnostic test where the dealer advised that the transmission slipping was a common failure, but advised that the transmission was operating normally. The dealer stated that the slipping would occur because the transmission assumed that the vehicle was stopping. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 8,500.

Driving the car for one year now I have noticed that the brakes make a pop noise after going in reverse then forward, also a fews times the car brakes feel like its not really slowing the car down from freeway speeds and almost casued a few accidents by not providing enough braking power. The suspension is inadequet for the car it bottoms the rear of the car with <100 lbs inside. The car tends to jump forward when decelerating by coasting and applying the brakes right before the auto level is reached has almost caused a few accidents from the car jumping forward about 1-2 feet also feels like a whiplash effect when it does this. Also when going from 0 to 10 at an intersection to move quickly out of the intersection the car does not have power and moves at a slow pace compared to the rpms. Dealer says the pop noise is a gap in the brake pads and the jump effect is possibly due to the ac disengaging but the ac was not disengaging at the time.
