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.

CR-V 4-cyl

Brake caliper did not release, causing the brake padsto wear out prematurely. Consume rtook vehicle to dealer on several occassions, but problem recurred. When the vehicle was stripped down the brakes were completely gone. The consumer stated that there is a design problem in the caliper system in which brakes do not fully retract causing both pads and rotors to quietly wear away. The consumers brakes were metal on metal. Dealership was no longer in business so the consumers warranty was null and void.

When applying brakes under normal conditions brakes made loud noise. Dealer inspected vehicle twice, and stated it was under Honda specifications.
