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.

The lever which locks the steering wheel in the up or down position does not stay in the locked position. It slowly loosens, even while driving. This is scary, especially if I'm making a turn when the wheels moves. I think that this should be a safety recall. I've never had a car do this.

The lever which locks the steering wheel into an up or down position is slipping causing the steering wheel to move up or down while driving. My fear is that this unstable wheel will cause my wife or I to have a serious accident. Can the manufacturer be made to correct this potentially dangerous condition?

Tilt steering lock mechanism will fail and allow steering column to float. This float condition leads to a loss of steering control. The condition is intermittent but most often occurs at temperatures below 40 degrees F.

The contact owns a 2004 Honda CRV. While driving 60-65 mph, the steering veered to the right. The vehicle crashed into a ditch. A police report was filed. The contact's insurance company would not pay for the damages. The VIN was unknown. The failure and current mileages were 25,000.

CR-V 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 26,200 miles
Our 2004 Honda CR-V pulls hard to the right when accelerating. It will change lanes on it's own unless you fight the steering wheel. It appears that other owners of the CR-V have the same issue. I'm afraid that this is a safety concern and hope that Honda can come up with a fix.
