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.

  • 2,600 miles
The new Honda Civic 2014 was purchased from a dealer three months ago. Car only has 2600 miles now. Big chip on owners door handle, and one other significant chip on side panel. Also multiple little chips on hood and on front bumper once I looked carefully. Small now but will rust and peel and unfair to sell car like this. Salesman said I just sell them not fix them. Took it to a body shop that I paid to replace plastic door handle. And used silver bottle of paint I bought from dealer and tried to touch up spots so won't rust but can see spots and doesn't match. Feel like paid new car price for used car. Got ripped off. Salesman said once you inspect car it is your problem. Now read others have same problem. Last Civic. Last Honda. Bad dealer and salesman too. Once you buy car they no longer care. Note-auto body shop also saw imperfections and said that was not right for brand new car.
