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.

2007 Honda CRV. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle wheels installed without TPMS sensors causing tire pressure monitoring system inoperable and request an investigation. The consumer believed the retailer knowingly and willingly made the TPMS inoperative, by installing wheels without TPMS even after the company had been advised that such action would violate the make inoperative prohibition of 49 usc 30122.

CR-V 4-cyl

  • 57,000 miles
In August, 2010, we purchased 4 Goodyear assurance fuel max tires. On December 7, 2012, my wife and I experienced a blow out to our rear tire traveling on interstate-95 in Florida at a high speed ((70mph) causing me to lose control of our 2007 Honda CRV. We swerving across six lanes of traffic, almost flipped, and narrowly avoided crashing into concrete a wall before I finally obtained control of the car and was able to pulley off onto the emergency lane. Our vehicle was serviced by Goodyear in October, and the tires were inspected and rotated at that time. At the time of the blowout, the tires only had 27,000 miles on them. They are warrantied for 65,000 miles. We contacted the Goodyear store the next day, and the manager inspected the tire and could not determine why the tire blew out. He asked if we hit something. We didn't hit a thing. We just heard a pop. The assistant manager of the store stated, "that's what they all say, " regarding our statement that we hit nothing. The tire was not torn, but was split from rim to rim, completely severing the belts. My wife and I could have been killed in this accident and other drivers could have seriously injured as well. We do not want anyone to experience anything like this ever again. Goodyear claims that they do not have any problem with these tires, but we have seen similar complaints on the internet about blowouts on Goodyear assurance tires. Goodyear offered us a small price adjustment to replace our tires, but we are afraid to purchase Goodyear tires. Goodyear must recall these defective tires before someone loses their life.

1st failure was tires in rear of the vehicle were worn on the inside causing the tire to deflate. Returned to the dealer asking them what happened. They blamed the tire manufacturer. Put new tires on had all the necessary dealer scheduled maintenance. Rotation ect. The new tires installed at 42,000 began to shimmy badly in the rear of the vehicle at 63,000 miles. Took the vehicle to a Honda dealer in fl and the tires had to be replaced in the rear because of the same wear as the 1st set. The rear suspension can not be adjusted to correct this problem. The solution was after market (not Honda mfg parts) with an adjustable arm. The camber can now be adjusted to make the vehicle safe to drive, the tires would have worn out in an area not easy to see an cause a blowout at high speed would be a real problem. Honda Corp will not admit fault. I see many people on the internet with the same problem as I experienced. The extended vehicle ins. I purchased will not pay for this problem. They say Honda has modified this part and they will not pay. This should be a recall in my opinion because of the safety issue. I was lucky to have my tire failure occur at a slow speed. At 70 mpg it would have been bad and everyone would have blamed the tires. But the real problem is the vehicle's unable to adjust the alignment to stop abnormal tire wear. Honda and all the dealers are in denial of the problem.

The contact owns a 2007 Honda CR-V equipped with hankook radial 225/65/R17 tires. The contact stated that the vehicle was parked when she noticed that the tires were wearing unevenly.

Warning for tire signal came on dash indicating a problem with tire pressure (again). I went to a local tire dealer for air and pressure check only to be advised that all 4 of my yokohama tires hat one inch plus of dry rot. These tires are about one year old, have approx. 35,000 miles on them and my vehicle has an outstanding service record. Copies of receipts show that every 40,000 miles I purchased new tires. All work and all part purchases have been done 100% at Honda dealer-jack matia in elyria, Ohio. The only service performed out of the dealer is twice a year detail service done at a reputable detail shop in westlake, Ohio. Upon my contacting the dealer and visiting them, they could not explain how this could be missed and never witnessed "dry rot". the return/credit process with the dealer and tire rack (Honda's distributor) was an insult on top of having to purchase brand new tires and my choice, a different brand. I expressed my disappointment and anger to the general manager at the dealership and was insulted. Research on my end indicates that there is in fact documentation about the tires and dry rot and the I believe the dealer is just as accountable for the tires since they sold them and installed them for me and should have seen what is one inch and half on all of the tires. Pictures are available. No harm came to me or anyone else. However, I feel I am due compensation/refund for this purchase and this matter should be investigated to insure that no harm comes to anyone else that might have yokohama tires.

2007 Honda CR-V. start making noise around 14,000 miles. Rear tires were cupped on outside. Went to the dealer and was stated that there is nothing wrong with the car. Came with Continental tires, and service representative stated that those tires are cheap and he can sell me some better tires. This a problem related to a lot of CR-V and civic models.

I purchased my CR-V as a certified used car with 7000 miles. The tire noise kept getting louder as the miles grew. By 18,000 miles I couldn't take it and went to the dealer. They said my tires were cupped and needed replaced. I put new tires on and had it aligned by the dealer. They could not get it in spec and replaced the rear springs. They aligned it, but I still had tire noise. Dealer said I bought cheap ($125/pc) tires. These tires are also now cupped so bad at 50,000 miles that I need to replace them, a 70K tire with only 30K on them. I also smell hot rubber on the rear passenger tire much like others have said, and only this tire. Coincidently this one is the cupped noise maker.

I have a 2007 Honda CRV with 19000 miles on it. I recently took it in for inspection and was told that the tires(Continental 225/65 R17) were dryrotted. I am 68 years old and have never had an automobile where the tires were dryrotted. There has to be something wrong when the tires on a 3 yr. Old vehicle, purchased new from Honda of turnersville, N.J., are dryrotted. I have notified turnerville Honda and am awaiting a response. There was no accident. Just defective tires that can cause an accident.

I am a loyal Honda owner on my third Honda, a 2007 CRV. The CRV came with oem tires, Bridgestone dueler H/T to be specific. When I bought the car I told the dealer I did not want such poorly rated tires but was told there was no option to upgrade to better tires. I put up with these bad tires for 3 years with no problems until my luck ran out this year when my area received several snow storms. My first near-miss happened in December of 2009 I got stuck on a very minor patch of snow and my car narrowly avoided sliding backwards into a creek just behind me that was about 10' deep. I should have replaced the tires right then but failed to make the connection to the bad tires and blamed it on the road conditions. The second near-miss came this week when we got a major snowstorm and my brother's house lost power and heat. The day after the storm I tried to drive to my brother's house and rescue him and his family. I got just out of my driveway onto the snow covered street and right away got stuck. I was only able to move my car back into the driveway by throwing dirt under all the tires to get traction. I pulled back into the driveway and was afraid to try again for 2 days until the snow softened up a bit. Keep in mind that my CRV is all wheel drive and the tires had less than 25,000 miles on them and were not worn out. In both cases the all wheel drive was useless and in both cases lives were at risk. I paid extra to get the all wheel drive version for just such occasions and I feel let down, to say the least. Today being the first time I could get to a main road (barely) I headed to the nearest tire shop to replace the horrible Bridgestone H/T's with Bridgestone alenza's, their highest rated tire for my vehicle. I am now able to drive in the same snow with no problem at all. Why is Honda allowed to put such poor tires on their cars, and why is Bridgestone allowed to sell such poor tires?

Both the left side oem tires on my Honda CRV 2007 model blew up on me while changing lanes. I did not hit anything and have been rotating them as recommended by Honda (all the servicing on the vehicle were done at the Honda dealership where I bough the car). Luckily, I was on a local road at 40 mph so I could keep my car under control. I have looked at the forums and have found that many other 2007 CRV customers are complaining about the abnormal wear on their oem (in my case Continental) tires. I took the car to a Honda dealer who recommended that I should change all four tires- which cost me close to $1000. My car only had 29000 miles on it. Honda apparently blames the tire manufacturer and wants its customers to complain directly to the tire maker. This is absurd since thee are many components in the car that Honda did not make on its own. Does it expect the customer to locate the maker of each component to complain when things go wrong? this is Honda's problem and it should compensate its existing customers and take corrective steps for the new cars. There is the danger of people losing control of their cars if such an incident happens on a highway.
