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

This is not so much a safety issue as a financial one. It seems that bits or metal go through the compressor. Ac was repaired by (bailey) dealership under/at 24,000 mil. Now at 76 K, ac went out again. Dealer (momentum) wanted $4,010. To repair but Honda offered to pay 1/2 leaving my share to be $2,005. Too much. I had compressor, etc replaced elsewhere for much less and was told there was no oil in the compressor. I would like this info. Sent to the Honda manufacture.
