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 windshield wiper intermittent setting did not work and then when the rain stopped, the wiper off setting did not work right away. Eventually it stopped working, but the windshield wipers did not "park" in the proper position. The wiper blades stopped in the middle of the windshield, thus interfering with vision. This happened repeatedly after several attempts to turn them off in the correct parked position. It was frightening to have this happen at a high speed on a wet road surface with poor visibility due to the position of the wiper blades.

Windshield wipers run erratically. While driving (in the rain), wipers stopped in the non parked position. Then wipers came back on and unable to turn them off even after turning car off and back on.

The contact owns a 2007 Honda CR-V. the contact stated that while driving 55 mph, the windshield wipers turned on and off on their own. The contact had to restart the vehicle to stop the failure. The vehicle was not taken to have the failure diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not contacted. The failure and current mileages were 99,000.

When checking washer fluid, I noticed the fluid was not visible, so I added the proper fluid. As nothing happened, I looked under car, & the washer solution was running out on the concrete floor, as I poured it into jug. Upon further examination, I found pieces of the tubing that had been chewed on, and in some areas, chewed completely through. One of these areas I was able to access via a plastic door, about 12 inches wide, by about 2 inches in height, located under the hood, in the center of the firewall, just below the windshield wipers. I found pieces of tubing in this area, also. Looking further, I found insulation that mice had moved from an unknown area, to make their nest. With some difficulty, I finally received a call from a Honda rep, in California. After about 25 minutes of discussion, in a peaceful manner, I was not offered any solution to the mice problem, as I was trying to get Honda to help me determine where the point of entry was located at, in the car body, that would allow mice to gain entry. As a former auto mechanic, & a structure aircraft mechanic, I planned to make the repair myself. (the insulation movement could be affecting the A/C & heating systems, also). Later, I found both of the wires to the left clearance light had been chewed completely through, wire & all. I later read on a web site, that the wiring insulation was made out of recycled food material, such as the husks from corn, or pods from mature dried beans!! I consider the windshield washer problem a safety hazard, for sure. Other mfg of asian cars could be using food grade wiring. If the mice can't be stopped, they could totally destroy these newer type cars, looking for shelter, with a built-in food supply. This should be considered a fire hazard, also, in my opinion, due to causing a short-circuit in the wiring systems.
