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.

2004 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 222006

CR-V 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 48,000 miles


While driving in warm and very wet weather I heard a loud pop and the air conditioner on the 2004 CR-V stopped blowing cold air. In order to see through the fogged windows we had to run the widow defogger on high, blowing hot air for the remaining 3 hours of our road trip. We were miserable, to say the least. Upon returning to houston I took the car to a mechanic, who elevated it and showed me the air compressor. The housing of the compressor is shattered. It looks like a hard-boiled egg shell after being cracked. This is a faulty part, which I'm told will cost $700 for just the compressor. The mechanic told me that when he contacted a dealer, the service manager told him they had sold 5 from that dealer alone that month! in October! the car was only 2 years old.
