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 2006 CR-V transmission problem. Transmission had to be replaced. After discovering the problem, the problem became severe within 3 weeks. Honda overcharged for the transmission repair and replaced the transmission with a rebuilt transmission rather than a new one. After reading the Honda complaints site, I discovered that Honda owners who have had their transmissions replaced are having problems with the replaced transmissions too. Also, the repair cost me $2,358.81 after Honda supposedly contributed $1,500 to the repair. This cost is more than I would have paid if I had taken the car to an independent transmission shop for repair. I have never had transmission problems with any other car I have owned, including my Toyota Camry, which had 279,000 miles on it when it was rear ended and totaled by a Ford 150.

My 2006 Honda CR-V has only 71,000 miles on it. The engine has been making a knocking noise so I took it to the dealership. The Honda dealership is telling me that I need a new transmission and that it is not covered under warranty.

Honda CRV 2006 AWD rear differential needs service every 30,000 minimum. This is contrary to the specifications in the owners manual.

2006 Honda, CR-V. rear differential making noise, at slowed speeds while turning. Checked owners manual, it states to change at 90,000 miles. Checked on-line to see if this was a common complaint. Couldn't believe there is an actual service bulletin out for this and no notification from the dealership I bought it from or the dealership where I've had my oil changes done at. Really disappointed that I have to pay to replace the fluids so I don't have damage done to my car. Why is Honda not notifying there loyal customers about this problem, maybe covering the cost to replace the fluids that are "just breaking down prematurely" I bought my Honda because of the reputation.

Dealer noticed a noise and reported a differential problem. Drained and refilled dual pump fluid, burnish differential clutches and drain and refill fluid again at a cost of $171.70. Seems to be a problem with the CR-V's that need to be addressed and a recall needs to be sent to owners.
