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.

1998 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

This spring, while driving on the interstate my 1998 Honda CR-V suddenly stalled. No warning at all. Luckily, I was able to pull to the shoulder. Turn the ignition off, wait a while and restart the car without another problem. A week or so later the same thing happened on local roads once one day and twice another day. Each time, I was blessed to be able to get to the center turn lane or off onto the shoulder without getting rear ended. It happened several more times before we could figure this out. My mechanic checked out the car and could find nothing "wrong". he looked on this site NHTSA and found the ignition switch recall. I took it to a curry Honda in chamblee, ga and they fixed it and the tail light assembly harness recall also. I've referred a few folks back to this site for future reference. Thanks, you may have saved my life. Btw- I love my CR-V!!!.
