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 #1

Nov 192004

CR-V 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 5 miles


This new 05' Honda CR-V ex has had numerous problems with no resolve from the dealer. It has a continued problem of pulling to the right as well as vibration at higher speeds. Also, the passenger side cv boot has been repaired twice as well as the transaxle. The vehicle came new with these problems. The dealer has tried diligently to fix the pttr problem with new tires, axle, rotation, alignment, wheels from other 05' CR-V's. but, they have said the vibration is within manufacture's specs!!!! I have spent more time with my car at the dealer since I bought this car in dececmber of 2004 and it is now April 2005! the vibration comes about throughout the cab, especially through the steering wheel at around 50-70 mph. I'm very upset that I pay good money for a car that brings me grief each and every time I drive the car on the hi-way. Around town it's fine. This car is not right, and has never been right from the factory. This ib the worst Honda purchase I have had after owning 5 other Honda's!
