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

problem #1

Jun 222003

CR-V 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 9,500 miles


My mom's 2003 Honda CR-V ex AWD automatic transmission has this clicking sound whenever we drive it around. On occasion the clicking is loud, but it can get very annoying. The automatic, when starting and putting in reverse has a very un-Honda like noise with a jolt. When we took it for the NHTSA recall for the automatic transmission they did the service. After a couple of days the clicking went back. Took it back to the dealership and the Honda certified mechanic said that it is normal because the brakes are adjusting itself. I want to know do any other Honda owners of CR-V's built from 2002-2003 model years have this same noise problem?
