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.

problem #2

CR-V 4WD 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,000 miles


: the contact stated when the vehicle was taken to an independent certified mechanic for the regular service brakes, the front of the vehicle was lifted up and the mechanic noticed the suspension dropped down. The contact was alerted by the mechanic because of the seriousness of the defect, and referred the contact to a dealership technician. The dealership informed there was no recall for the defect. The manufacturer was contacted, who referred the contact to the service manager. When the service manager was notified, an estimate from a body shop was requested. The body shop refused to provide an estimate because this was a structural matter which was not performed at a body shop. The dealership recommended not driving the vehicle on highways or off the road. The independent certified mechanic was going to provide an estimate but the service manager discouraged the contact because the repairs would not be covered by the dealership.
