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

Steering wheel locking mechanism is defective and drops unexpectedtly in my 03" Honda CRV. Reported this problem to Honda Corp and I am awaiting to see if it will be covered by them. When I called the dealer back I was told this was not the first time he had seen this problem. I feel this safety concern is not being addressed by Honda Corp promptly and I am not allowing my wife and small child to drive the vehicle. The repair will cost a thousand dollars to fix, my expense I was told. When this problem with the tilt wheel locking system fails - this is a accident waiting to happen - especially at high speeds in a SUV.

The steering wheel has locked and vehicle could not be controlled while the vehicle was moving. This has occurred on two separate occasions. The vehicle had to be turned off then on again in order for the steering wheel to be unlocked.
