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.

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.

Takata recall. On April 29, 2016, I brought this car to my local Honda dealer. I was informed that because of the takata airbag recall, that this car was dangerous and I should not drive the car. However, they provided me with a loaner car, under the program approved by Honda Motors, at no cost to me. Therefore I did not drive the car until the driver side airbag was repaired. This was done on August 12, 2016. At that time I was told that I would no longer qualify for a loaner even though they had not repaired the passenger-side airbag because of a lack of parts. I was told that the car was still dangerous, however, in that there should be no passenger in the passenger seat. I discussed this with the service manager, and he and I both agreed that this was not an entirely satisfactory solution. Besides the inconvenience of not having a usable passenger seat, if the passenger-side airbag did deploy, it would seem possible that metal parts could scatter throughout the passenger compartment. Thus, it wouldn't matter whether there was anyone in the passenger seat. People could still be injured, even in the rear seats. Honda apparently will not pay for a loaner car, since the car is now "drivable". until the passenger airbag can be repaired, it would seem to me that this is a dangerous situation. This could be easily remedied by extending the loaner car period until the passenger side airbags can be repaired.

Takata recall I called my local dealership dch Honda mission valley located in san diego, calif on 7/27 and was told that they would place an order for my passenger side air bag. But I was told they were instructed they couldn't place order for at least another week and then it could take up to three weeks for the part to arrive. I was instructed to contact Honda corporate. I called the 800-999-1009 number for Honda corporate on 7/27 and was told they would open a case for me. I was and am requesting a rental car to drive during this time as the car I am driving is dangerous and could cause injury to vehicle occupant. I was told that a case number could not be given to me as the case needed to be assigned but I could expect a call back in 2 - 3 days. I called back again on 8/4 to the 800-999-1009 Honda corporate number and was told my case had yet to be assigned but they could provide me with a case # 04900251. I was told that someone would be calling me back within a week and to answer my phone if I received an unknown caller number. I called yet again on 8/14 and was told that I still had not been assigned a case manager. I am baffled that no one is responding to me or giving me an update regarding my unsafe car. I purchased this car based on the reputation of Honda and for the number of people the car can seat. I usually always have a passenger sitting in my passenger seat. I do not have alternative transportation. I was even asked by dch Honda if I had another car I could drive during the recall period....no, I don't. Honda is dragging their feet in addressing their customers real concerns regarding the safety of their vehicles. Honda should be responsible for paying for a rental car for its customers who are requesting them due to the danger they have placed us in. Help!!!!

Takata recall.. recall for driver side air bags fix took 2 months a loaner car was provided. Had car for approximately one month received second notice for passenger side air bag on 07/2016 fix wont be available til late summer early fall. Recommend not to Transport passenger in front seat. I requested a loaner approximately 2 weeks ago and was recently informed that the request was sent to the escalation department and that they would call me when they get to my request. I purchased the vehicle because I needed the space and not being able to Transport anyone in the front seat makes my care unusable. Honda had me park my car for 2 months until they received the driver side air bags and I know that while they were waiting for the driver side air bags to be repaired Honda knew that the passenger side air bags were defective as well. I strongly feel that they should provided a loaner until the repairs were complete or buy back my car for a fair price. When I purchased my vehicle I bought a four seat car not three.

Takata recall: Asked for repair about 2 months ago. Told by dealership parts are on order called today and dealership told me parts may be ready in 1-2 more months -- they don't know when they will come in. Called the airbag hotline for Honda -- and was told a rental car could be offered. I am extremely disappointed the dealership did not tell me they would offer a rental car. I am extremely disappointed the dealership doesn't know when the parts will come in. If this is a deadly problem, the dealership is not taking it seriously.

Takata recall - I received a safety recall from Honda concerning the passenger side airbag. Honda stated parts wouldn't be available until late summer/fall. The proposed solution by Honda "avoid having a passenger sit in the front passenger's seat until recall is repaired" is not a realistic solution. I Transport multiple passengers and need to have someone sit in the front passenger's seat. I called Honda automobile customer service on 7/26/16 to request an alternate vehicle. I was told a case manger would call me within 2-3 business days. They also stated they would escalate my request so that I could get a response sooner. I've made four more calls since the initial one with the latest being on 8/6/16. Each time the Honda rep said they would escalate my case for a quicker response but case mangers are overloaded. As of today, 8/8/16, I still haven't received the first call from a case manger concerning the request for an alternate vehicle. This is total unsat and I'm sure I'm not the only one having this issue with Honda. Honda's lack of proper planning to handle the response to the safety recall they sent out is causing a hardship for those that need to use the passenger's seat. Honda should be directed to hire more case mangers and work off the backlog of request soonest. They should also be directed to have a case manger call me concerning my request. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide in this matter.
