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.

My mother leases a Honda Civic 2015 and was parking the car at a slow speed, foot on break the engine surged and the car sped forward. The car hit the car in front of me. I immediately put the car in park and shut it off. After a few minutes I restarted the car to back it up --as soon as I put it in reverse (with my foot covering the break) it surged again and the car sped backwards. I filed a case with Honda America 05128777 - they inspected the car and say they can not find any reason for this. I am posting this because it was really frightening and I do not want this to happen to anyone else.

I reported during the last oil change that the car was stalling specifically when trying to accelerate between 10 mph & 30 mph. The car stalls, and has even completely stopped for a full 60 seconds while trying to change lanes in traffic even though the gas pedal was completed depressed. This almost caused me to have an accident. The tech said it was due to the econ button and the engine trying to conserve energy. I was told to not use the econ button (although this is suppose to save me money on gas and fuel efficiency and part of the allure of the vehicle.) despite that I have had the econ button off and the car continues to stall and not accelerate properly. Again this is usually between 10 mpg to 30 mph. I don't know if this is a transmission problem or part of the pistol pin snap ring problem or even possibly a fuel injector problem. The problem appears to be getting worse and occurring more frequently. My husband has the same type and year vehicle and his does not behave the same way. His acceleration appears to be fine and does not stall as mine does. Also the tire pressure gauge has come on twice for no apparent reason. Once was 8-15-15 during a 4 hour road trip which occurred after we arrived. The 2nd time was immediately after I returned home from my last oil change in 4-2016. This is the (3rd) reported problem with this vehicle. Problem (1) was the stained headliner (6/2015)which was replaced and has not had any further issues (2) was the center console pin coming loose and popping up (4-2016) which has currently remained intact and now the acceleration is getting worse. (continuously).

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.

When it is sunny outside the rear view camera image is so dark that the camera is not a reliable tool for use backing the car up, thus, it is not performing as designed.

While traveling at slow speeds in city driving, the car tends to lurch forward. Concerned about takata airbag- before I bought vehicle asked if one was installed and/ or airbag manufacturer. Could not get an answer and was told to buy a 2015 "just to be safe". in light of the 2015 VW takata airbag that just ruptured I would like advice on what to do as I bought the car. It is hard to believe that takata would be allowed to continue putting airbags in without knowing the cause.

My rear view cameras is extremely dark and dangerous to use, especially in the sun (I believe they are all that way) I went to the dealer in port charlotte Florida where I bought the car twi times and after 3 employees agreed you can not see well enough out of it to be able to use it they had me bring it back so they can have their master tech call a company master tech to trouble shoot the problem and it would take 3 to 4 hours. The result they gave me in writing was "working as designed". there is obviously something wrong with the design as my 2012 Honda CRV worked great and the 2013 Honda Civics worked great. They changed the camera in the Civic in 2014, I think they are all bad too.

I leased a new 2015 Honda Civic from ourisman Honda in bethesda, Maryland in June 2015. Shortly after this purchase, I started to see small pale spiders in the car. This is the first time I have ever seen a spider in any car that I have owned. I see about 1 spider a week and most recently, this morning July 11th involving a spider about 1/2 an inch in diameter and an off-white/pale color. I took the car into the dealership this morning and my complaint was greeted with both incredulity and mirth. One of the service people said that spiders are part of nature and that there is nothing they could do. I am filing this report with dot as well as the state of md and ourisman in hopes that Honda will do something about this before someone (including myself) gets into a car accident.

We purchased this car on April 11, 2015. Don't drive the car everyday. However, every time I am in the car, even for short distances, I get really sick--headache, nausea, tightness in the head, and extreme tiredness. I am not prone to car sickness, and have driven a brand new Honda Accord previously, and have never experienced these symptoms before. A 2011 report cites Honda Civic as being the 'healthiest' car to drive. Has something changed in the materials that Honda now uses" is anyone else experiencing these problems? what can I do next? how long before ventilation dissipates these issues"
