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 #1

Feb 022003

CR-V EX 4 cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 18,000 miles


Since new, this car's front shoulder belts haven't retracted worth a crap. The result: when you close the door, the seat belt and buckle get caught in the door jam.

I had them replace the retractors under warranty, but that didnt' help at all. Now at 162000 miles, I'm still putting up with this P.O.S. but I'm not sure why.

The build-quality on this car is atrocious. Honda's are supposed to be SOOOO great. Well, this one sucks! I bought this car new for $23k and have suffered through irritating shortcomings such as this since. The engine has been great. The tranny too. It has the original clutch still. But the trim and accessories and little parts absolutely blow.

Luckily I have mechanical skills and lots of tools. If I had to pay for most of these fixes over the last 8 years, I'd be broke.
