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 4-cyl

We where rear ended on the 805 South at E St in san diego ca. The traffic came to a complete stop and a older Ford Expedition plowed into us at 55 mph, upon impact the Honda accelerated full throttle with complete loss of brakes, my wife was driving I was front passenger and my handicapped son was R/R, she was able to steer the car to the right shoulder as I slammed the car into park and turned the ignition off at about 40 mph, it took about 100 yards before it came to a stop, the car is at tipton Honda in el cajon and they say that there is no evidence or computer fault code of said problem, how do I put my family back into the car and feel completely safe knowing it might happen again.
