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

  • 40,000 miles
My Honda CRV ex 2003 brakes lights fail. The only light for braking is the third light. This has occurred 3 or 4 times in the past 4 years and happened again this week. I am afraid I will be in an accident because someone will not notice the third light when I brake. The dealer has replaced the bulbs but the issue continues. This last time the bulbs did not last 5,000 miles.
