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.

2004 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

problem #1

I've had trouble with this Honda, CRV since I got it. I still have a Honda warranty on it until April 09 then I have an extended warranty. There was only 5200 km on her when I got her. It definitely has to be a lemon, I hate to say it, but how does a fan come loose and go through your radiator unless it was not on properly. How does a cylinder head and manifold warp from overheating when the car didn't over heat? Why do I have to pay for this problem when I am still covered under the Honda warranty? How can they say that I was the cause of the overheating when I have witnesses that were there when the anti- freeze just ran all over the driveway. I had only driven her at the time for about 10 min.

This is my first Honda and I know it will be my last and everyone else's if I can do it.

I am so frustrated. They are hounding me to pay the bill, the Honda co had no regard for the defects of its' vehicles. It's time to stay with our own vehicles.
