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.

CR-V 4-cyl

I bought an Honda 2006 CR-V new in 2006. In Oct. 2009 I started experiencing multiple low beam headlight bulb failures. This started after the expiration of the warranty. Since that time I have replaced the left and right bulbs 7 times. This bulb failure is spontaneous and when it happens at night while driving, it presents a very dangerous situation. There have been a number of complaints involving Honda CR-V low beam light bulb failures in the NHTSA data base. This situation is not unique to my vehicle. Honda has refused to recognize this problem and did not supply a solution. I feel a recall would be valid in this situation since driving with one or no headlights presents a safety issue. I have replaced all the bulbs at my own expense.

The contact owns a 2006 Honda CR-V. while driving at an unknown speed, the low beam headlights stopped functioning. The contact was able to continue operating the high beams headlights but the low beams would not turn back on. The contact replaced the headlights himself. The failure occurred intermittently about nine times. During some of the failures, only one side of the headlights would stop functioning. The failure mileage was 60,000 and the current mileage was 91,000. The VIN was unavailable.

CR-V 4-cyl

Own 2006 Honda CRV, had the right headlight go out and now the left headlight is out, replaced the left and still not working, looked on internet and found numerous complaints about the CRV headlight problem, called Honda dealer and they did not acknowledge any problems but the complaints on the internet carry out that the CRV has a headlight problem, when I bought the new headlight bulb from an independent parts house they said they sell a ton of these and can't figure out why Honda does not offer a solution to minimize this problem.

I purchased a Honda certified used 2006 CR-V in June 2010. It has been a great vehicle until September 2010. Around labor day weekend, my driver's side low beam headlight went out. So went to wal-mart and bought a new set. Went ahead and replaced both at the same time. Two weeks later, the passenger low beam went out, replaced it. Three week after that, the drivers side went out while driving home from work at night, replaced that one. Three weeks later the passengers side again went out. Replaced it. Now, the first week in December, the driver side was out, again!!! I am very careful to not touch the bulb itself when replacing it. I've also used the dielectric grease to help make a seal on the connector. I believe that there is something else wrong electrically. I am taking my car to get brakes in a couple of weeks, so I will ask them to take a look. Obviously, the problem stems further down to the vehicle itself. At $25/bulb, it's rather expensive.

I own a 2006 Honda CR-V and the driverside low beam headlight bulb keeps burning out. I didn't do the work myself I had a mechanic do it and he doesn't know what's up.

I have had to replace the headlight bulb as many as 6 times since we bought the car new in 2006. The last time was 11-25-09, during a heavy rainstorm. I also suspect that the daytime running light option is responsible for the short lifespan of the bulbs.
