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

Problems with front brakes on 2003 Honda CRV. There was a clunking noise coming from the brakes. When the dealer was notified the stated it was the characteristic of the SUV and there was nothing they could do. The dealer did replace the lower brake pad retainer clips as per service bulletin. The consumer was offered to drive another 2003 CRV to prove the noisy brakes were a characteristic of the vehicle. Consumer wasn't happy with this and would like some sort of discount or the dealer to pay off the vehicle. The seat belt wouldn't latch. Consumer had the throttle cable replaced to eliminate the noise but to no avail. Consumer was informed the noise will never go completely away.
