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.

The bolts kept coming loose where they attached to the floor.The dealer re-tightened the bolts,but within a short time they would come loose and the drivers seat would once again start to rock.just to inform you I am a 180 # man.The dealer finally fixed the problem and it has not returned.

problem #1

Jan 012005

CR-V EX 4 cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 45,000 miles

Car has 165k miles on it and for the last 120k miles, the driver's seat has rocked back and forth, despite it being locked into position by the seat track.

After removing the seat, it was discovered, that two metal links that connect the lower seat track assembly to the upper seat track assembly, had worn metal bushings. A metal post goes inside these bushings, and there is a large gap, since the bushings are worn and destroyed.

This is probably going to be an expensive repair, since I'm almost sure that Honda wont have a small bushing that their sub-contractor built, in their inventory. I will probably get saddled with having to buy a whole new seat track for this seat, which I'm sure won't be cheap. Honda's quality, at least on this car, has been abyssmal, in my opinion. Not sure what happened, but all of the little defects have added up to one big fat "F" for this CR-V. Never again !

Update from Jan 27, 2010: After searching the internet, I found the Honda Service Bulletin (# 02-017) for this exact problem. It lists the parts you need to repair it. I ordered the parts today from the local dealer...What a rip-off, too. $46 for about $2 worth of metal. They really stick it to you.

Here are the part #'s you'll need to fix it:

Front Link (two required) # 81139-S3N-003 H/C 6850853
Bushing (six required) #90502-S3N-013 H/C 6690440 Washers (two required) #90503-S3N-003 H/C 6852578
