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. Notes: Honda redesigned the CR-V for the 2007 model year to kick off the 3rd-generation of the popular SUV. Unfortunately that redesign came with malfunctioning door locksand shoddy tires that wear out fast.

The door lock actuators fail without warning. When trying to exit the vehicle the actuator is stuck in the locked position and could prevent emergency exit of the vehicle. It is very difficult for an adult to manually overide the lock and impossible for a child. One actuator failure causes multiple doors not to function correctly. The Honda dealer will not fix under warranty.

We have a problem with the door latch in our 2007 Honda CR-V on the back driver seat. It was fixed under the warranty. Couple months later we started having a problem with the front driver door. I was on the way back home with an 8 week old baby. When I parked the car and tried to open door I realized that the doors were completely closed- I couldn't open them at all. I tried several times with no result. The baby I was caring on the back of the seat and I couldn't get out of the car. After many tries, I used the front passenger door to get out of the car. The driver doors and the trunk were completely closed- jammed. I couldn't even open with the key. I was so scared as I'm using that car to go to the doctor or for shopping purposes. All the time my baby is with me and this is a very serious safety issue if you cannot open the driver door. I called my husband and we went to the closest Honda service- mcgrath Honda. They told us that they can fix it the next day for $500. They did. The next day car was fixed, but on my back way home I realized that front passenger door had the same problem. I came back to the service and they fix the door for free as it were the third door with the same issue. My main concern is what will happen if the car will be on fire" how I will escape with my baby if the doors are jammed? what will happen with my baby if the situation will repeat"

I have a 2007 Honda CR-V. I have replace two door locks on this vehicle. A third door is having the same problem of not locking. The dealership is telling me I need to pay for the door repair and then I might get a refund depending on the district mangers consent. I feel this is unfair since there is obviously a defect with the locking system. This a safety issue and a hazard if some has small children.

2007 Honda automatic door locks malfunction. In December 2010 the driver side and the back door began to malfunction. Honda made me pay for it and they reimbursed 1/2 since I was past warranty. Now its April 2011 and here I am again the passenger side is locking then pops open again. It will not stay locked. I am at Honda and it is going to cost $238 to repair. This is a defect in the door looks. It is also a safety issue. I feel open to carjackers as I cannot lock my doors. I drive children around, and I have no capability of securing my car and the items in it. They are making me pay first and then they might refund to me part of the fees. I feel I should not pay for any of their defects. I can request the old part for this last correction. If you want me to send it to you. I was told that the dealer ship had been replacing the door locks.

2007 Honda CRV power locks are working intermittently having problems with driverside rear door and trunk latch. Also everytime I slow and speed up again the locks are trying to relock, current mileage is 51500. Called Honda was told it would cost $115./hr to find out whats wrong. Can not afford to spend 500-600 to fix. Electrical power locks should not go bad shame on Honda.

July 5,2010, parked our 2007 Honda CRV(VIN:[xxx] );the passenger door failed to unlock...would not unlock with the automatic button release...would not allow the passenger to physically release the lock nor allow the door handle to open the door...also would not allow the rear hatch to open...took to dealer and was identified as a latch failure in passenger fixed for $ complaint is that the passenger was locked inside and could not exit but by crawling over console and out driver car door should lock a passenger permanently inside...had this involved an accident, this could lead to tragic results...I believe this is a recall. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6). The consumer stated the latch failed again. Updated IVOQ 02/24/11

The contact owns a 2007 Honda CRV. The contact stated that the driver side would not unlock from the inside or the outside of the vehicle. The contact had to enter/ exit the vehicle from the passenger side door. The vehicle was towed to a local body shop to have the locks repaired. The contact has not called the manufacture regarding this issue. The contact feels this is a safety issue because the contact was locked out of the vehicle in freezing cold weather. Failure mileage was 44,000.
