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.

Passenger front door lock actuator (NHTSA reference: #10057463) - I was never notified by Honda of this class-action settlement - my mechanic informed me on 8-30-16 of this settlement during a routine oil change - after contacting Honda America at 800-999-1009 -ext [xxx], I was informed the settlement for the passenger front door actuator was amended and terminated as of November 2015 - my passenger front door actuator has been non-working since the 1st quarter of 2015 - Honda has politely refused any corrective action - twice I have been informed that a manager will call to review my request; no calls have been received - I have received recall notices from Honda (I.e. March 2016 regarding the airbags) so I am definitely in their computer system - had I been made aware of the passenger front door actuator settlement I would have immediately contacted the local Honda dealer for a prompt and full repair free of charge questions: A) does Honda America bear any burden of having to document they did send written notification of this settlement in a timely manner? B) why was a termination date agreed to of Nov. 2015" if a part is defective, as it clearly is in my situation, it will remain defective even after Nov. 2015" C) what recourse do I have that the NHTSA can assist me with? thank you information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Front passenger door lock mechanism failure prevents normal operation of the manual lock control and locks passengers into the vehicle. With the failure, the manual lock control has high mechanical resistance and immediately returns to the lock position after attempting to unlock. This power lock failure is not not fail safe, and creates a safety hazard as it is nearly impossible to unlock and then open the door before the door locks itself. Exiting the vehicle in emergency situations such as an accident is compromised as passengers are locked into the vehicle. I respectfully request the initiation of a safety inquiry for this failure to support a mandatory recall for power lock failures in 2007 and other affected years of the Honda CRV.

I have four issues. First, my power steering assembly needs to be replaced. It is leaking and will cause more problems. I see on many sites where this issue is very prevalent in 2007 CR-V's. second, the interior lighting does not work correctly. Only the back inside lights come on when the doors open; the front drivers inside light only comes on when pushed; the front passengers inside light does not work at all. Third, the back passenger side door will not lock. I am not able to lock it manually or remotely. It locks and pops right back open. I see many complaints online with the locks on 2007 CR-V's. fourth, the TPMS light stays on.

At the time they replaced my driver side airbag they also replaced the driver side actuator for locking the door per an active recall and after leaving the dealership in statesville nc my doors immediately began locking and unlocking, I contacted the dealer who did original repair and said they can do nothing for passenger side, my car will now not lock and randomly locks and unlocks the doors, this was not occurring before driver side was repaired. Please help, obviously the passenger side actuator is faulty too. I appreciate your attention to this matter. I can no longer lock my passenger side doors. This occurs when the car is moving, very distracting to the driver of auto

Summer 2015 my A/C started to blow warm air. Took my car tot he Honda dealership in which they told me that my compressor had failed and needed to be replaced. I replaced the compressor as it was just starting to warm up. According to tsb #sb-12-072 NHTSA id #10056005, there was an extended warranty for those parts, but of course my VIN number was not involved. Even though it was the exact same problem. I wish there was a way to even get partially reimbursed because $1,900 was a lot to swallow.

After I had my Honda repaired due to a recall for something due to a problem with its suspension, my tires can not be balanced and the tire warning light does not go out. The ac just stopped working prior to the summer of 2015, . the right front door lock stopped working about the same time and now the starter had to be replaced. The car was getting its tires replaced when the tires would not balance and the tire warning light would not go off. The starter would not work after I left an appointment in the parking lot. I do not know if the car was movig or stationary when the door stopped working.

The automatic door locking system engages and disengages on it's own, while driving, slowing down and stopping, then starting up again. A very "false sense of security" to all the passengers because the doors may be unlocked or locked at any time and the occupants may not be able to get out when they think they can based on what they hear the door locks have done by falsely engaging & disengaging.

I came out of work and started my car. It smelled horrible, like an electrical fire. I brought it to my Honda dealership and they said it is the clutch mechanism. The A/C compressor failed and it is going to cost $1600 to fix. This was legitimately out of nowhere with no issue up until this point in time and it took me completely by surprise. Upon looking online, there are several reports of similar situations. A recall really should be done. This is an extremely expensive repair for owners to be burdened with.

The locks are clicking on and off constantly while driving in traffic at a slow speed. They are not locking or unlocking the way they should. I already had the lock accentuator replaced with the recall. That did not cure my problem. My passenger window is not working as well. I cannot roll it down as it takes several tries to roll it back up. There is a serious eletronic flaw which could lock me in my car preventing me from getting out if I cannot roll my windows down. I will have to get a video of this while driving.
