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

  • Manual transmission
  • 27,000 miles
My 2003 Honda CRV has only 27000 miles on it. During a long drive on a vacation, the rear brakes began to fail. When I arrived at my destination, the rear pads were gone and the rear disks were destroyed. I paid nearly $500 to replace the rear disc brakes. The front disc brakes show only 50% wear. The original back brakes were clearly defective, although Honda will not admit this.
