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.

2015 Honda Civic Owner Comments

I first purchased a 2015 Honda Civic and started hearing this "grinding/creaky" when I pushed down on my brakes, coming from my rear. Don't get me wrong, I am able to use my brakes as I wanted, but when I pushed down on the brakes to put in gear or just pushed down a little too hard, I would hear this noise. Also I noticed, whenever I had a full tank of gas (took me a while to figure this out), I would hear this "thumping" noise. If I do not have gas in my car, I do not hear the noise. I went back to the dealership a total of 3 times. The mechanics told me these were not normal noises, they tried to diagnose my car, if kept my car the last time for 5 days but was unable to get the sound to really go away. I even tired to take it to another Honda dealership to get my car looked at, but I was told, "to take my car back where I bought it from because its clear there is a problem, and they didn't want their techs name on it". I was shocked. I went back to the original dealer and they even called the american Honda technicians who were of no help. I was fed up and felt unsafe in my car, since I was being told these were not "normal" noises, I asked to trade in my car (same exact year/model). Despite test driving the second car (on an empty gas tank), I didn't hear any noises initially. But now its been a few days and I hear the exact same noises in this car, as I did the first one. I have no idea what to do. I just want a car that does not make any of these noises. I just traded in my car to receive this one I am currently driving on 2/5/16. I have yet to go back to the dealership to let them know of these noises on the 2nd car, because I fear being jerked around again. I reached out to corporate and received a case manager named robin who has yet to get back to me and never returns phone calls. I am desperate to find out these noises.

Purchased car with 136 miles on it. Noticed the brakes made a popping sound when pedal was depressed, also a noise was heard when the car was put into different gears. Took it in several times and was told nothing is wrong. Maybe you are pressing to hard on the brakes.third month in I went back again for the gear shift noise and was told thats just how these Civics sound.
