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 2012 Honda Civic. The contact stated as the vehicle entered the driveway on an incline the vehicle began to move in reverse. The gear shift was in drive when the failure occurred three times. There was also a clanking noise when the gears changed automatically and whenever the contact made a left or right turn the steering wheel did not return to its normal position. The vehicle will be taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 994.

My 2012 Honda Civic LX coupe has extremely vague steering feel at speeds greater than 55 mph, causing excessive and repeated correction to maintain proper course. The car also veers to the right on a regular basis causing me to direct the steering wheel towards the left to continue driving straight. The dealer has performed a 4 wheel alignment twice without resolution. They have also inspected the steering and suspension components, as well as done a road test. No problems are reported, thus no repairs could be done. Previous Honda do not evidence this problem. The issue remains and is persistent.

My 2012 Honda Civic LX coupe has extremely vague steering feel, causing excessive and repeated correction to maintain proper course. The car also veers to the right on a regular basis causing me to direct the steering wheel towards the left to continue driving straight. I have had a Honda dealer address this problem, and while it seems slightly better the underlying problems, including its veering rightward remain annoyingly persistent.

I got into a accident last Monday, Feb. 13, 2012, like around 8 or 9 in the morning. I was making a right turn when my car went out of control even though I was already stepping on the brakes and I was trying to turn the steering wheel to the left but the car just kept going to the right until I hit the pole sign that says "no parking at all times" (something like that). The metal pole that I hit broke and almost 1/4 of that metal pole that was stuck to the ground scraped the bottom of part of my car and the bottom covering fell off and it cost $4,000 to repair and now I have to pay $500 for my deductible which is not even my fault why my car did that. It wasn't the first time my car did that. It did something weird twice last year before I got into this accident last week. First was last year, a month or two after I got my car when I was driving on the freeway when I tried stepping on the breaks and instead of my car slowing down, it suddenly accelerated. Thank goodness there's no car in front of me. Then the second time was I think around November or December of last year when my friend was test driving the car to see if she wants to buy the same thing. We were together in the car and she was driving when she stopped stepping on the gas and brakes and the car just accelerated by itself. She was surprised that it that but we both figured that any car is just like that and since we both don't know anything about cars we thought it was normal for my car to accelerate on its own until I got into this accident, the police told me that it is not normal for my car to do that specially when I'm already stepping on the brakes. :(

The contact owns 2012 Honda Civic. The contact stated that there was a fuel leak and the vehicle pulled toward the right while driving. The dealer attempted on two occasions to repair the alignment failure, but was unsuccessful. The manufacturer informed the contact that there was a recall, but she would have to pay to have the vehicle repaired. The NHTSA campaign id number was 11V288000 (fuel system, other: Delivery: Hoses, lines/piping, and fittings). The contact planned on taking the vehicle in to an authorized dealer and the manufacturer would be notified. The failure mileage was 6,000.
