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.

2005 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

problem #3

Led lights on the dash board of my 2005 Honda CRV began failing approximately 2 years ago (May 2008) and have now burned out on left side, obscuring tachometer and temp gauge and 1/2 of speedometer. Honda service in new britain ct (schaller) refused to fix under my extended warranty (light bulbs not covered). It appears others have had same problem. Honda should do the right thing and recall all '05 crvs for a global fix.

The following is a problem that I have with my veh, which I hope you can resolve. Cr.V 2005 VIN # [xxx] maintenance history: All scheduled maintenance were performed by Honda of nanuet. Problem: Approximately 2 years after purchase the led lights of the instrument panel, starting from the left side, begin to go out. Resulting that during night-time driving I am unable to see the temperature gauge and part of the RPM gauge. During a scheduled maintenance I brought this situation up, to the svc mgr who promptly told me that it was not a covered item. I mentioned that I was extremely concerned about this safety issue but the issue was not resolved. Needless to say, more of the led lights have stopped working; the only lights that continue to work are the ones on the right side of the speedometer that light up 120mph thru 140mph. This situation in my opinion is an extremely dangerous one while driving at night. And may result in an accident or worse. The leds obliviously were defective from the beginning and should have been replaced by the service department in nanuet. Since this situation is potentially dangerous- since I do use the vehicle at night, I am respectfully requesting that Honda replace the leds lights at no cost to me. I spoke with mr sergio salvador, cust svc on 4/1/10 who simply stated that I should've done something earlier. I told that I did informed the dealer service mgr two years after purchase, of the problem and my concern about my safety driving at night, I also told that this defect is a serious safety issue with severe possible consequences, and further emphasized that the Honda dealership was aware of the problem 3 years ago but did nothing about it. Mr. Salvador still maintained that Honda would not make the repair. I told him that the led lights must have been defective from the onset. There was no resolution. Therefore I am making this complaint. Please help. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Vsa diagnostic trouble code. Vsa light comes on and off at will. Sometimes the vsa light is preceded by a loud banging noise when braking and turning. Car jerks and screeches. Vsa light goes off when restarting car. Dealership will only diagnose and work on under warranty if vsa light is on. After persistent visits to dealership, they were able to diagnose and order a part even though vsa light was off.
