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.

Vehicle stability or vsa sight and ABS light came on at the same time. Honda dealer advised me that the repair would cost me $2337 dollars to repair. I would think that a recall would be in order for this safety related and stability related problem!

CR-V 4-cyl

  • 56,000 miles
I am the original owner of the well maintained vehicle, a 2005 Honda CRV with 56,781 miles currently, and no longer covered by any warranty. At @ 55,500 miles, the car had the ABS and vsa lights come on spontaneously on the dashboard display which indicated that they were not functional. They would not turn off. The car was taken to its regular service dealership, economy Honda in chattanooga, tn and the problem was diagnosed (free of charge) as a failure of the ABS/vsa modulator (computer). Cost to repair was @ $2,400 (@ $1800 for the part, balance labor). They said it was O.K. to drive but it had no anti-lock brakes or vsa. Because this was a safety issue, an unusual occurrence and very expensive to repair, I contacted the district Honda customer service (case # N012011-03-1501146) and explained the problem. They were most helpful and courteous. They recorded the complaint and after 3 days Honda called and agreed to share 50% of the cost to repair. The CRV was repaired on March 29,2011 at the same dealership with my cost share of $1206.79. In my internet search on the problem, I found at least 55 instances (usa, ca, and eu) of the same ABS/vsa problem and cost to repair on one blog I found. All vehicles were 2005 and 2006 Honda crvs.
