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.

2002 Honda CRV - rotors need to be replaced very frequently due to warping which causes vibrations in the steering wheel when applying the brakes. My CRV has had its rotors replaced four times and the vehicle has 90,000 miles. It is not driven in harsh conditions.

While the engine is under load in a 2002 CRV-ex Honda, if the driver pulses the brake pedal twice rapidly there is dramatic brake failure. In a panic stop, if the driver presses on both the gas pedal and the brake pedal in this timing, there would be no braking power. If the driver suggested the brakes failed, there would be no other evidence to support the claim without performing this test as the brakes will thereafter perform normally. I have demonstrated the failure to Honda mechanics with a privately owned car and they duplicated the occurrence in a dealer car. They have researched the Honda technical databases and could not find any references to the brake failure or a way to fix it.
