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

I am one of three owners who purchased Honda CR-V ex (and LX) in 2002. This has been a great for me I was able to pay for by myself. I was at the dealers and I was able to see it unwrapped with only 6 miles on it as I singed the form to get it that day. I had it insurance the day I picked it up, with that being said I love this car! but in the last two years I have notice a growing number of incidents involving the seat belts in this vehicle. I have at times found it difficult to securely fasten the seat belts at all. My attempt to get the seat belt secured can be laboring; my mother with her failing health cannot do it very well at all. If I was only one of the three of us I would assume that it is just my vehicle but it is not. It can take up to 5 minutes to do this simple task. This makes me question if the connection will give way during an accident. Please understand that my 6 year old daughter is in this car twice a day. This is not just one car seat belt but all the ones in the back and front. Since it is the law to ensure that all persons in a vehicle are securely fastens in the retraining devices. This was a recall some time ago but it was not address when I took my car to a Honda dealer (2002 Honda CR-V seat belts recall 01V351000), nor the rocking of the driver's seat (2002 Honda CR-V seats recall 02V251000) which I find most distracting. I fear that owner of this used vehicles will find it repair to be high cost items. Please consider an investigation of these issues. I hope that it will results in another recall. If need a petition to collect names of the current owners to show you the number of complaints will out weight the very conservative number of affected owner from the number on the recall notice of 2 in the 2002 Honda CR-V seats recall 02V251000 and 6744 affected owners in the 2002 Honda CR-V seat belts recall 01V351000.
