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.

I have a 2002 Honda CRV. On numerous occasions I have accidentally attempted to remove the key from the ignition with out the transmission being in park and have been successful. Not every time. I don't know the exact dates. Honda had a safety recall for an interlock. I took the vehicle in and they advised interlock working at this time. After that on at least two occasions I removed the key without having in park. I returned to dealer again and again while at the dealer it did not fail. The dealer said they could not fix until failed while in their possession. I called Honda customer service and they asked me to take it back to the dealer again. I asked what happened if it didnT fail at the dealer again. They said then they could not do anything. Since this is an intermittent problem, I think Honda should take the necessary steps to correct it.

This is the 3rd recall on my 2002 Honda CR-V. the 1st was for the power-train-automatic transmission, the 2nd for electrical system-ignition switch, and now it's for the CR-V A/T shift cable. The whole car seems faulty. What are my rights as a consumer" shouldn't they just give me a new car"
