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.

2006 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

Honda CR-V leaks rainwater onto floors of vehicle. An inch of water in the passenger compartment makes it dangerous to operate pedals which become slippery from footware, water damage to fire extinguisher and other safety equipment stored on floor for times of emergency. Many, many complaints from other CR-V owners experiencing the same problem online. I dried out the carpet, it rained again and another inch of water inside the vehicle. If mildew/mold grows this becomes a serious health hazard jepordizing anyone riding in the vehicle, especially those with compramised immune systems.

3:30am - as I was sleeping, I heard an explosion. As I looked out my bedroom window, I could tell something was on fire in driveway. I ran outside and CR-V was completely engulfed in flames. Called 911, fire dept arrived and put fire out. Chester county fire marshall arrived @4:30am, nothing suspicious noted. Car and contents were a total loss. Driveway was ruined, but fortunately no other structures were involved.

During heavy rains, water will seep in under the carpets from somewhere forward and lower than the windshield. The water comes from under the dashboard, usually on the passenger side. It does not drip in, but rather soaks up from under the carpet. I personally have seen the water grow up to 2 inches in depth above the carpets. After some internet searching, similar problems were found in earlier models of CR-V. the issues found stemmed from faulty/old factory seals on items like the firewall and A/C vents. Please contact with more questions if this information is unclear or could be improved.
