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.

2001 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

problem #1

May 212010

CR-V LX 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,500 miles


I bought this honda "Used As Is" from a dealer 2 1/2 years ago. Some months later it felt like the accelerator would rev up when I hit the brakes like for Ex: coming up to Stop Lights,Parking Spaces,Stop Signs etc.So after a couple of more times I thought it was maybe the floor mats were doing this malfunction so, I replaced them. I thought that would solve but the problem started reoccurring several months after that. And from time to time this would occur again

Today was the worse, as I was pulling into a gas station some guy on a bicycle, shot in front of my path as I was pulling in I applied the brakes but felt the accelerator moving up I then hit the brakes really hard and at the same time with my right hand I began to turn off the ignition but the problem remedied itself the dude thought I was prolly an A.H.,impatient, whatever, thank god he didn't get hurt

My Question: Is there anything I can do to remedy this problem like contact Honda Corp I know I bought this vehicle "used" but couldn't it also be termed as a defect or would I need a mechanic's advice or what?? Any type of advice ,suggestion's,etc would be appreciated.

Outside of this' problem" I like my CRV and have had no other problems with it

Thanks in advance
