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 icons on the lock and unlock buttons of the key/transmitter wear off prematurely. Making it difficult to remotely open or close the doors. Both the dealer and manufacturer claim the key/transmitter are not covered by the 3yr/36,000 mile warranty.

In 2007, we purchased a 2007 Honda CRV to tow, four wheels down. We purchased the blue ox aventa LX, BX7445 tow bar class iv (10,000 lb for a 2 inch receiver) and the base plate BX2246 made for the 2007 Honda CR-V\, we found that the front fascia of the Honda had pulled away and upon further inspection, discovered the blue ox base plate had failed. I mean, totally failed, the metal (not the bolts) had ripped, this happened on both sides, where the base plate is attached (bolted) to the frame. The base plate, was now only being held (and also our vehicle) only by the safety cables.
