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.

CarComplaints.com 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 passenger side door lock will not remain locked. It will unlock by itself and when the car is in motion at more the 10 mph the lock will cycle between locking and unlocking. It is the same problem that many other Honda owners of a CR-V appear to be having. A passenger must than ride with the door unlocked and I feel this is a safety hazard. Also, the car can't be secured when parked. Honda Corp. Is aware of this problem but has not made any effort to correct it. Honda Corp. States that this is normal wear and tear and because it is out of the warranty mileage(36,000) it is the owners responsibility to pay for this repair. To me this sounds more like a design flaw and Honda should stand behind their product.

On Monday June 24, 2013, I put my children in the car, fastened their car seats, walked around to my driver door to find it locked. My children were locked in the vehicle in my garage with the keys in the ignition. (thank goodness I was still at home and was able to locate the spare key) the car is automatically locking itself within seconds of the unlock button being pressed on the remote. It locks and unlocks itself while driving at this point (July 1, 2013) this again poses a large hazard to Transport children in a car whose doors unlock while driving. Absolutely a safety defect! after some online research, this is a very common safety malfunction in 2007 CRV's, yet Honda has not made a recall. I guess they are not that concerned about safety.

The passengers automatic door lock with lock automatically, then after 2 seconds it will un-lock automatically. This issue just started to happen appx 3 weeks ago. We cannot lock the passengers door anytime (I.e. during driving and/or parked in the carport).

The front 2 doors lock and unlock at random times. The front passenger door would not allow my daughter to get out of car or allow me to open manually from the outside. The is a very big safety hazard. Honda dealership wants $400 per door to fix. I guess they are waiting until someone dies from this to recall.

My door locks on the car would lock and unlock while driving and there was no way to stop it from doing this. In addition, there was no way for me to lock the vehicle while driving or after parking and leaving the vehicle. When the dealer did not fix the problem I then asked them how I could lock the vehicle and the servicemen sent me on my way and said there was no way to do so. This problem has continued with each of the doors. The latest is that the car door will not unlock. The other day I had to crawl across the console to get out of the car because there was no way to unlock the door and get out. I am concerned about the safety of this issue because if there were an accident it is possible that people in the car would not be able to get out, especially if the accident resulted in a car fire. In addition, with children in the back seat, there is no way to prevent them from opening the door while driving. I have taken the car into Honda six times regarding the different doors and each time have had to fight with them regarding fixing this problem. The first time the vehicle was under warranty so it was fixed without a question, but each additional time I have had to wait several days and argue with different people. Door locks should work and when you review different forums and blogs on line and so many people have complained about this safety issue they should be taking care of this problem.

While traveling the door locks would open and close as time went by I noticed that when I locked the doors in a parked position the left rear door would not stay locked, after putting a piece of nail file in the handle it worked fine. As of yesterday 6/23/13 it started to lock and unlock while traveling and the remote key control won't work. However you can lock the doors manually traveling or in a parked position.

Passenger side door lock started to unlock randomly, then would lock and unlock when driving. All other doors remained locked. I tried to reset auto locks in accordance with the Honda CRV owners manual. This worked a couple times for a day or so, then back to the same old locking /unlocking. The passenger door does not lock at all now leaving my vehicle and passengers in danger. When searching thru the internet for other possible fixes, I was caught off guard in finding so many others with the same issue. I see there was a recall on the 2006 Honda CRV's I have a 2007. In this day and age, there is a safe feeling when driving around and you have the security of a locked car door. I am not feeling very safe in my car these days and hope something is done by Honda regarding this problem.

In December, my rear passenger side door would not unlock. I tried to manually unlock the door and the lock would not budge. My baby was in his rear-facing carseat on the rear passenger side of the car so I had to open the rear driver side door to get my baby out through that door. The problem has continued to escalate to the point that as of today (06/11/13), the rear passenger side door will no longer lock and the front passenger side door will only remain unlocked for a few seconds before moving itself back to the locked position. I have an appointment with my local Honda dealer tomorrow to fix the problem at my expense. This is a safety issue and based upon the number of complaints I have found on the internet, Honda should be forced to issue a recall. I have three children and I fear that if there is an accident and we need to evacuate the vehicle, the door locks may fail all together and we may not be able to safely exit the vehicle.

While driving my car, I noticed that the door locks started unlocking on and off with every acceleration increase of 10-15 mph (major safety issue for occupants). In addition, the passenger side door will not lock with the electronic key or by manual push. Worse, the door lock problem led to my car being vulnerable to unlawful entry, and sure enough, my car was ransacked (items stolen) this week after I thought all my "dependable Honda" doors were locked. After researching, I am disgusted to see that many Honda CR-V (2007 model) drivers are experiencing exact or similar problems with the doors (un)locking. It is unbelievable that this safety issue hasn't been recalled yet. Very unhappy!!!

I'm having issues with the front passenger door lock mechanism. A couple weeks ago, I could not get the door to unlock. I tried the remote, the automatic button on the door, and even manually locking. Nothing worked. Then, yesterday, the opposite began. The front passenger door will not stay locked. Again, trying all means of locking and nothing keeps it locked. It will initially lock, but slowly unlocks. As I'm driving, it will try to lock again at 9 mph, but doesn't hold. So, in stop and go traffic, I get to hear my door locking over and over again. I have seen several posts experiencing the identical issue. My dealer could not find any recall information.

Even when you lock it (or it locks automatically above 10 mph), the front two door locks will automatically open, when driving or even after parking the car. Based upon other posts, this seems to be a chronic problem with the door lock actuator, and should be the subject of a recall. ## VIN failed ##

For some time now the doors open and then immediately lock again when using remote keyless entry. But now occasionally the panic button goes off and the car honks and flashes and the vehicle is inoperable. This results in a safety hazard as the latest incident occurred with children in the vehicle with high temperatures and we were all essentially stranded until the car settled down. It is easy to imagine a much more serious scenario where the children are locked in the car and the car cannot be opened because the locks are inoperable and the car will not respond to deactivating the panic button.

The doors unlock themselves whether driving or parked. When I use my remote to lock my doors two of my doors automatically unlock themselves. When driving and auto locks engage, two of the doors automatically unlock themselves causing the car to continually lock and unlock itself.
