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.

Drivers side visor will not stay up, dropping down to block visibility.

Sun visor failure. This is a safety issue as it will no longer fold up or fold away. This causes a visual hazard and seems like a design flaw that has affected every CR-V and Accord eventually. Timing seems to depend on the # of times the visor is flipped, & thats why the passenger side is noted less often (flipped less frequently). There are many online video fixes (youtube), but as there are many online blogs reporting this problem & is clearly a visual hazard I think this needs to be addressed by Honda & ntsb.

For months, sun visor hung low, not blocking visibility, but it would not return to normal, upright position. Eventually had a complete failure of visor where it neither closes nor blocks sun, merely hangs and causes visibility issues. Because of its position, it also regularly hits my head if exiting vehicle or leaning forward for any reason. Honda recalled many civics for this reason but have done nothing to repair Cr-vs.

Driver's side visor began to sag and finally will not stay up. It is approximately 5 inches from the roof of the vehicle, causing a safety concern. I also hit my head routinely entering and exiting the vehicle. Dealer advises they are unaware of any pattern of failure with visors on the 2006 CRV, and are only aware of problems with visors on civics. I have read blogs showing there are actually numerous reports of failures, and repeated repairs for this problem on the 2006 model. They advise the charge will be $150 plus labor to repair the problem.

I was driving and pulled down my sun visor as the sun was in my eyes. When I went to return it to position it kept falling down into my view of the road. I had just started a 1500 mile trip and it turned into a real safety hazard as it kept falling down blocking my view.
