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.

My 2001 Honda CR-V air conditioning compressor imploded and sent shards of metal into the air conditioning system. This was without warning, as I just had my air conditioning serviced by the Honda dealership a month ago. I have discovered that this is a widespread problem with Honda Cr-vs and that Honda America has not addressed this major defect. I am especially concerned because I live in Arizona, and the temperature is 108 degrees, with 113 predicted for the weekend. This makes the defect very dangerous. I am part of a non-profit rescue group and regularly Transport pets; this could have been deadly if it happened with baby kittens or puppies in the car. The Honda service shot said they talked with the Honda America representative and that he would not cover any of the repairs, despite it being a widespread defect and despite the fact that there is a lawsuit pending for this defect. The repair was extremely expensive, and again, I just had the air conditioning system serviced at the same Honda service shop that I have been using for the past 5 years. I have maintained this vehicle well and have all service records. The CR-V is a dangerous vehicle because of this defect, particularly for people living in states with extreme heat.

I was wondering if it was mandatory for cars to indicate whether or not all doors are closed on their dashboards. On the Honda 2001 CRV it is impossible to tell is a door is securely shut because there is no indicator. This I believe is a safety hazard and I would like it to be investigated or even recalled.
