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

CR-V LX 2.4L

Car brought to local Honda dealer. Inspection revealed problems with 'Throttle body assembly' had been noticed by Honda 2008. Dealer says too bad...out of warrenty. Cost to repair will exceed $1,100.00. I feel this was a known problem by Honda, and that it should be replaced under a recall. I had a similar problem with the air conditioning unit. Once out of warranty we were told that it must be replaced at our expense. We paid for the replacement. There seems to be a pattern from Honda on covering items during the warranty period. We love the car, but would have to think real hard to purchase another.
