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.

2016 Honda Civic Owner Comments

problem #2

Car allowed itself to be turned off while still in drive. Upon leaving car it rolled down incline into another car. My husbands Honda (2011 CRV) does not allow the car to turned off in drive nor does it allow the key to be removed from the ignition while still in gear/drive.

problem #1

  • 1,500 miles
After a sudden stop, such as stopping for a yellow light about to turn red, the car jerks forward after reaching 0 mph. It seems to be a transmission issue reported by various users across Civic community forums.
