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 #4

CR-V 4-cyl

Front end pulls hard to right on uneven pavement, or on highway if small cut lines are on roadway. Vehicle has always pulled to right since new and I have had to have wheel alignments more than twice a year. Vehicle has never been in an accident. Vehicle had warranty work for clunking noise in front end when new. Have went through several sets of tires prematurely because the tires on the front always wear out on the outer and inner edge. Tires are always properly inflated to mfg specs. After getting new tires and alignment the vehicle operates fine for about a month or two then it gradually gets worse. After a couple months when releasing the gas peddle the car slows down quickly and the pulling to the right gets worse.
