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.

CarComplaints.com 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.

Honda had a class action settlement for replacement of upper control arm kit extended warranty due to rear wheel excessive tire wear, however I was not informed of issue and therefore have missed the deadline for warranty. After contacting american Honda, placing a claim for goodwill assistance and after reviewing they provided they could not do anything for me and that I could re-submit claim only after I had Honda dealer perform diagnostics which they charge $75 fee with no guarantee that they would recover this cost or provide any assistance for repair of issue. I know this is the issue as I have all original Honda oem parts, have noticed excessive inner tire wear on the right rear tire and had pep boys perform inspection alerting me to the Honda replacement kit. In my research I have also found statement that this condition can cause issues with steering and safety. With Honda repair prices much higher than other independent repair shops, there is no reason to pay Honda diagnostics charge simply to confirm what already established knowledge is. End result is that Honda has corrected a flawed design yet is not willing to make right with providing repair for newly designed replacement kit, which makes me a very un-satisfied customer of their products.

Civic Hybrid 4-cyl

  • 152,000 miles
Experiencing premature tire wear out on rear tires (<30K miles of highway driving). Was informed through an internet search for known problems that there was a service bulletin (sb 08-001) that informed dealers that there were defective rear upper control arms that could cause premature tire wear. Inspection was required to determine if the control arms were defective. This information was not initially provided by the dealership when asked if there were any defect with the car. When the car was being brought in for a recall service, the service manager conceded that there was a service bulletin and that they would check out the car. The defect was confirmed and the control arms were replaced at no charge. The tires however were unusable and had to be replaced and Honda would not cover that expense even though the service bulletin specifically stated that the defect would cause premature tire wearout (cupping).
