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

Dec 292006

(reported on)

CR-V 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles

Twice, at 40,000 and 70,000, while I was idling in traffic with air conditioning on, the car stalled. It immediately restarted both times, but immediately, only hot air came out. I drive directly to Honda dealer both times, with same conclusion, fluid had flooded entire air conditioning system and ruined it. A totally new system had to be put in, at a cost of $3,500-$4,000. I was covered by extended warranty both times. A Honda technician told me confidentially that it was a constant problem with CR-V's, that Honda was being pressured to issue a recall but decided against it. My warranty is over and I live in fear of it happening again.
