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 vechile will randomly not start everything would have power and the lights will turn on but the car will start the lights on the dashboard will flicker and make weird noises. Also would get ABS vsa TPMS and brake light warning while trying to start and then when you jump start it, it would work again. Dealer checked the car and said everything is fine battery checks good and alternator as well but the car keeps doing it and has left me down on the road 4 times in I last 3 months I need Honda to fix this !!!!!!!!!

Vermin chewed up my engine bay wiring harness wires and the initial potential fix will cost $360, if the damage is worse it will cost another $1500 at least.

The break light is broken so I can't shift out of park without using a golf tee to override it.

After having the car for 1 month the tire light came on saying from the computer on the dash "check tire pressure." I went to where I bought the car twice and nothing was wrong with the tires and they shut the computer symbol off. Then 3 months goes by and it comes on again, I brought it in and they claimed "there was a small leak in the tire." Majestic Honda fixed it?? and made me pay $100 for this. Now it is June 29th, 2015 and my light went on again and in another tire it was low. The tire was actually low and I had to put air in it. I will be taking the car back to majestic but I think that #1 the first few months something was wrong with the computer, I do not think there was any leak in the tire, I looked at the tire and I did not find where they "fixed the small leak." Now in another tire it is going flat. I have read that you have had problems with the tires and I do not feel that I should have to pay for this. You had a recall on certain models but not mine, there is something wrong with the tires and your electrical with the tires. Please call me back and let me know what is going on. I do not think I should have to pay for these tires when their was a recall and maybe you missed mine. Also my friend bought the exact car I did and her light "check tires" goes on consistently.

Inflate tire light went on in less than 24 hours of driving. Learned from parts manager that this is common and a software issue. No fix right now. Hands free calling works about 50% of the time. Not safe to use while driving and frustrating the other half of the time. Honda Corp. Says this is common and we need to get used to it only working sometimes. Mileage on sticker said 30mpg city / 39mpg highway. I get 22-23 mpg on Suburban streets (not short city blocks). This is worse than my 2001 Honda Accord that I traded in for this Civic. One of the reasons I bought the Civic vs. The Accord was due to the great mileage I was assured I would get on the Civic. Not even close. I am a loyal Honda owner for the last 25 yrs. This is my 4th Honda and it will be my last. I view this car as a lemon. No car (especially a Honda) should need to be fixed in the first 24 hours of ownership. It's been to pauly Honda 3 times in the last 2 weeks of ownership. They have been very defensive. Beware. Honda does not make the cars that it used to make.
