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.

2013 Honda Civic Owner Comments

problem #4

Feb 202014


  • 3,000 miles


No incident has occurred, yet. This is a warning to prevent accidents. Honda has moved the position of the driver's side side-view mirror from what it was on my previous 2000 year model. The current position makes it very difficult to see traffic approaching the driver side of the car, even when the mirror is adjusted as far to the side as possible. I think it is because the mirror has moved too close to the driver, rather than closer to the front of the car. I'm guessing they did this since they made the driver side window two pieces instead of one (they added a small triangle shaped window at the front of the window). This is an accident waiting to happen.
