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 Hybrid

  • 55,900 miles


This car has an automatic transmission. When in reverse it struggles to move and Honda says the transmission needs to be replaced but it only has 55,900 miles on it. Honda states that only they can work on the cvt transmission and of course can control parts and labor cost and they will not sell parts to outside mechanics. It seems like a scheme to make money off of customers off of a unreliable part. Checking the internet there seems to be a lot of complaints. A normal automatic transmission replacement charge parts and labor is around $1800 but Honda wants $4200 to $4900.
