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

problem #6

CR-V 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,958 miles


With 62,000 miles on my 2002 CR-V, the SRS light came on and stays on. Having had the same problem with a 2000 Accord and a 2000 Acura TL I know that the problem I a failed sensor system and the cost will approach $700. Honda has a problem with their SRS and I consider it an extreme safety issue. Honda continues to stonewall the problem and simply denies the problem is theirs. You people have no clout to make them do anything so the only answer is to stop buying Honda products. I hereby promise to never by another Honda product. I've already replaced the Acura with a Toyota avalon, and the Accord with a Toyota Camry. I will replace the CR-V with something other than a Honda.

The SRS light came on, indicating that the restraint system failed. A safety concern for us. Honda replaced a connector in the steering wheel.

While driving air bag warning light continuously illuminated on the dashboard. As a result, air bags were inoperative and wouldn't deploy when needed. Vehicle was inspected several times. At last inspection mechanic indicated to the consumer that air bag sensor failed, and will cost $665 for the part alone, not including labor. Problem was not resolved.
