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

There was a loud rattling noise coming from my air conditioner. My husband took a look at it. When he turned the air conditioner on and went around to the front of the car. The ball bearings in my compressor failed and the compressor exploded. Shards of metal flew from under the car. From the research I have done there have been a lot of Honda crvs doing the same. If anyone was standing near the car at the time of explosion, they could have been hurt.
