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

CR-V 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Air conditioner compressor failure. A safety concern in that this locks up the compressor pulley and possibly the entire engine belt. Replaced by Honda.

problem #1

  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,800 miles
Air conditioner compressor had completely failed. A few days after the compressor failed, the serpentine belt snapped. The vehicle was in motion when the A/C went out with no warning. The vehicle made a tapping noise and smelled like burning rubber along with smoke coming out from the hood when the serpentine belt was found snapped.
