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

I am not the owner of the CRV, I was involved in an accident with one. I am writing to complain about the poor and hazerdous design of the "cpillar mounted rear lights". by most accounts the CRV is a great vehicle to own. It is another matter completely if you have the misfortune of following one in traffic, as I did, if you own a car. You see, there are no rear tail lights at the bottom of this vehicle and not even a cyclops light in the center of it. Instead, there is a lovely tire proudly displaying the Honda logo. Their websites even boast about that nice wrap-around look in the back, they just don't tell the consumer that this is an accident waiting to happen with your name on it because they have failed to put in lights on the bottom so lower riding vehicles can see them. In a low car or with a sun visor down, one cannot see any lights at all where one would reasonably expect them to be, instead they are at the top sides of the vehicle on the "older" models. This poor, unconscionable, and hazerdous design in the name of looks must be fixed.
