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.

problem #2

Jul 012004

CR-V 4WD 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 800 miles


When making a low speed evasive manuever that requires turning sharply from one direction to another, the steering loses its power assist temporarily. Feels like steering is jammed. Problem manifests when traveling below 20mph with braking and a swerve to one direction followed by acceleration and attempt to straighten out vehicle.
