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.

Civic 4-cyl

  • 5,000 miles


My car is 2014 Honda Civic ex-L navi with pushbutton engine start/stop. I was approaching an incident on the highway and had slowed down to about 30 mph. I thought I should activate the 4-way flashers as a warning to other drivers. When I pushed the button, I pushed the start/stop button by mistake and shut off the engine. The start/stop button is just behind the steering wheel, and the flasher button is about six inches to the lower right of the start/stop button. Of course when the engine stopped I lost power steering and power brake boost. It was really hard to control the vehicle at that point. Thankfully traffic was light. The steering wheel was turned slightly to the left and I continued to coast slightly left. I order to restart the engine, I had to put the transmission in neutral and push lightly on the brake pedal. This is a difficult sequence to perform when one's vehicle is dead and coasting with minimal control. By the time I restarted the engine and regained control I was approaching the jersey barriers in the center of the highway and was being passed by the vehicles behind me. The start/stop button is real easy to operate. It does not have to be fully depressed, just a slight touch will activate it. More force is required to operate the flasher button than the start/stop button. Plus, the start/stop button protrudes from the surface of the dash and can be easily pressed by accident. The start/stop should be recessed inside a shroud and activation should require a full depression and be held for at least two seconds. And ideally the flasher button should be relocated to the top center of the dashboard. The event date and mileage are approximate.

Had to apply brake with left foot and then apply gas peddle with right foot for immediate acceleration to avoid accident. Upon applying brake and then the gas car bogged as if to stall almost causing another accident. This has happened several times since initial incident. I took car to fox Honda, Michigan (dealer where car was leased from) and they indicated that I shouldn't break with left and then give it gas with right. Unfortunately there have been more than one scenario where this was needed to be done and in each case it bogged to point of stall before accelerating. Dealership said there was nothing they could do.
