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

While driving away from a riverside campsite, tried to straddle some ruts on the access road. Vehicle slipped into the ruts and bottomed out slightly, but I was still able to drive out and did not get stuck. The bracket directly behind the gas tank on the undercarriage, which holds fuel system related components, was almost ripped off by this minor contact. It is the lowest part of the undercarriage and very vulnerable to damage without any sort of protection. 2 of 3 mounts were ripped loose, and the assembly was bent back to rub on the rear axle and hang down even lower. This problem was reported by other vr-V drivers who had to navigate deep snow and sand. Sensitive fuel system parts should not be vulnerable to damage in this way! vehicle is out of warranty. I will have a custom made skid plate and mounting bracket installed if Honda doesn't offer to fix for free with a new, safer design.
