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. Notes: The 2006 Civic Hybrid has an engine that doesn't shut off when it should and electrical components that shut off when they shouldn't.

2006 Honda Civic Hybrid Owner Comments

problem #1

Civic Hybrid

Windshield wipers suddenly stop working properly - they fail to stop wiping when the switch is turned off, the intermittent settings fail to work at all, and when the wipers do stop it is often in the middle of a swipe, obscuring the driver's vision. An internet search of the problem revealed that thousands of Honda owners experience the same problem and that Honda has issued technical bulletins describing the exact problem. This is a serious safety issue because the problem is intermittent and occurs when one is using the wipers. It is also a safety issue in that the failure of the wipers to park properly blocks the driver's line of sight.
