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 CR-V Owner Comments

Driving at 65 mph, my 2002 Honda CRV lost total control and uncontrollably jerked to right and left into the oncoming traffic lane and ended up spinning completely around. I had no control over the car whatsoever. The jerking and spinning stopped when the engine stopped. Then when starting the car again it would not run in 2nd, 4th or 5th gears. In those gears the car jerked forward (at least it was in a straight direction). I drove in 1st and 3rd gears only. The Honda mechanic in kalispell Montana where I had the car towed to said that a fuse in the fuse box that had to with the "load" had come loose and therefore caused the malfunction. It could have been a deadly "malfunction." One fuse can cause such an experience must be an engineering flaw.
