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.

problem #2

Aug 012016

Civic Hybrid

  • Automatic transmission
  • 83,885 miles


pretty expensive to fix... kinda sucks considering the car only has 140,000km. I no longer love the car (its brown and rusting at the wheel wells).

I stuck between selling it as is but would feel bad in doing that to someone else.

my 97 accord was champ compared to this civic. I sold it to my little sister with 160,000km and she sold it to a friend at 230,000km and its still kicking.

After replacing the battery, the car performed normally. My dealer got me a discount on the battery from American Honda Motors.
