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.

2011 Honda Civic Owner Comments

problem #2

Civic 4-cyl

Main headlights failed for a time period (~15 minutes) at various times. Had the car for 2 years and problem occurred at least 4 times. The last time was last week when there was a terrible storm. First time when it was snowing really hard. The other two times the weather was just fine, no rain or snow. Took the vehicle to the Honda dealer twice, but both times the dealer said they can't do anything because they can't duplicate the problem. Very disappointed with Honda.
