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.

Takata recall!!?! airbag indicator issues starting at 45 mi. Check airbag warning is now on always. It's taken over my lcd display screen completely making it useless I.e. maintenance info, mileage, handsfree equip. Options. Everything (aside from back up camera, still functioning while in reverse) airbag warning light indicator has disable all components on steering wheel I.e. horn, cruise control, volume ect.. still no recall? I'm scared for my families safety! do something Honda. Someone needs to make Honda address these issues asap!

TPMS indicator light on. Tires inflated at the proper pressure. I had same problem with my 2011 Honda Civic, dealer wanted to charge $112 per tire to correct it. This is highway robbery NHTSA should not allow it. Otherwise car drives fine, it is just one more gimmick auto manufacturers inject w/federal blessing to rip-off consumers.

My 2013 Honda Civic hesitates when I attempt to accelerate suddenly. This is dangerous when trying to make a left hand turn in front of oncoming traffic, or merge at a freeway entry and accelerate to highway speeds. The electronic fuel injection, computer control or the engine or cv transmission may be the cause. I suspect the computer control, as the car is equipped with "eco mode". but the problem occurs whether "eco mode" is on or off. This has happened repeatedly, but I will only list the most recent issue below.

Only 18 months old & had to replace the motor for the window on drivers side ~ wouldn't roll up. All the parts were sold out and had to get one from Honda dealer in phx. Apparently this is a common problem as the tech looked it up & found numerous issues. This was an expensive repair (on a tight budget) but was able to make payments. Very disappointed there was no compensation from Honda!

Takata recall, I noticed yesterday when rolling my windows down that my back left window was not rolling down. When I was parked I tried pushing the button up and down to see if it would roll down and it wouldn't. it made a slight clicking sound and than stopped. Today, I called gary smith Honda to see what the issue may be and they said it was the motor inside the door. I called auto zone and they looked up the year and model of my car to find the correct part and than informed me that the part was sold out locally and the vendor online was also sold out for the year and make of my car. With that said, there's a strong indication I am not the only one having the problem. I find it out of the usual for a window that is rarely if ever rolled down to have a motor go out. The other windows roll up and down with no problem.

My 2013 Honda Civic exl the accelerator failed to respond to acceleration.the vehicle erroneously decelerated while the accelerator pedal was depressed. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The car was checked out they couldn T find the fault. The failure started @ 300 miles. And been doing this 12 times the mileage is now 7,500 miles, I wanted the dealer and Honda know that they have a problem. The last time I was turning left at a traffic light and almost was hit.
