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.

2008 Honda Civic Hybrid Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 202011

Civic Hybrid 4-cyl

  • 38,000 miles


On or around 11/20/2011, the control panel on my 2008 Honda Civic hybrid lost all power while driving on ih-10 w in houston, tx. As a result, I had no information about my speed, fuel level, RPM, etc. I believe this problem was related to my hybrid battery as it had to be replaced shortly thereafter. Currently, I am having trouble with the replacement hybrid battery and Honda is refusing to remedy the problem under the warranty. I am writing to the NHTSA implore it to take a closer look at issues with Honda's hybrid batteries. It is well known that these batteries are failing at a high rate and there are several class action lawsuits concerning the performance of these batteries. This problem is well known to Honda and something needs to be done as it is putting peoples' lives at risk.
