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.

2003 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

My wife owns a 2003 Honda CRV purchased from jeff weler Honda of cincinnati. The passenger side mirror is broken. Honda informed me that the part is on backorder and as a result, they cannot supply the mirror to me. However, it appears that Honda is currently making 2004 CRV's and the part number for the passenger side mirror is the same for both the 2003 and the 2004 models. Additionally, many Honda dealers have new 2003 and 2004 CRV's on their lots, but they are unwilling to "borrow" a mirror from a new vehicle and supply it to consumers who have broken mirrors. Additionally, I had no choice but to drive the car from cincinnati to columbus and back yesterday in order to pick up a friend who had been injured in an accident. Driving the car on the highway without a passenger side mirror is dangerous given the design of the inside mirror and the design of the rear body pillars. From my point of view, it appears that Honda has the parts to make my wife's car safe and they are choosing to put priority on the building of new cars instead of making existing cars safe. Fyi -- the Honda part number is 76203-sca-A01.
