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.

2 power driven door locks (passenger & driver side) on a 1998 Honda CRV have both failed. The failure was the inability to enter the vehicle (driver side) or exit the vehicle (driver and passenger). Both locks needed to be replaced within 6 months (Feb - Aug '04). Additionally, the hatch lock also failed and needed replacement. Speaking with american Honda and since the mileage is 125 - 130K miles, they indicated there was nothing they could do as well as they had no recalls on the vehicles. The dealership however had indicated that there have been intermittent problems with locks requiring repair.

The hatch door latch of my 98 Honda CRV is broken. This has been slowly deteriorating for some time, and is now completely defective. Only the glass hatch window is holding the door shut. The vehicle/hatch door have not withstood any extreme or unusual use, nor has that part of the vehicle sustained damage in an accident. This is a safety defect that the manufacturer should investigate and repair.

Consumer stated the back door latch was broken. This has been slowly deteriorating for about two months. Consumer consulted mechanic and was told it would cost approximately $200 since it was not on recall. The consumer believed it was a defect.
