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.

I have a 2008 Honda CR-V and my rear door unlocks itself automatically. For a while I was able to get it to lock manually, by lock door button, but no longer. Now every time I start to proceed on green light/signal, my car thinks the doors are not locked, and automatically re-locks the 3 working doors, as well. My car is now out of warranty and I saw over the internet that so many customers is having this problem in their CR-V.

Both rear door locks don't stay locked. After you pass 10 mi per hour the locks unlock and make a loud clanking sound when this happens. After you stop and turn off car they don't lock, you have to try 2-3 times to lock them. Also when you lock or unlock the car there is a loud clanky sound from the locks.

First: All 4 door locks started to lock and unlock by it self soon after pressing the lock/open door button on car key. At one point when trying to open the car door by pressing lock/open, it would click open and lock just as quickly. It took a total of 5 minutes and was able to open car door while holding door handle and pulling as soon as it clicked. Second: The car accelerates when pressing brake, in order to avoid hitting the car in front the brake must be pressed at a distance of three cars. Both of these problems are very serious and a major safety concern. Honda does not have recall for this problem. NHTSA please issue a recall, don't wait for a serious accident that would take the life of a person/persons.

Door locks. When it is warm outside above 55 degrees the passenger front door lock will not stay locked. If it is below 55 degrees the doors will lock by itself. This is a safety concern as while driving the door could open up. I have read that Honda is aware of the incidents as there are many claims on this. It is only the passenger front door and Honda wants to charge 105 dollars just to find out what is wrong. That is not even to fix the problem that they know exists.

First problem - March 2014 - left rear door start to lock and unlock by itself as driving. Replaced actuator. Second problem - August 2014 - passenger door start doing the same thing lock and unlock by itself. I manually try to lock, unlocks by itself. The rear door does the same thing along with the front door. Third problem - September 2014 - rear hatch will not unlock using the remote. Had to get key in the door lock and turn couple of times until finally opened. This issues are a major safety concern for my family. NHTSA please issue a recall - don't wait until a major injury or possibly a death occurs.

Driver's door will not lock by any method or configuration. Cannot lock it manually from inside the car, or from the outside with the electronic key fob or physically with the key. When driving the car attempts to lock all the doors automatically after the car exceeds 15 kph - all the doors lock except for the driver's door which immediately moves back to the unlocked position. Cannot lock the driver's door manually or by pressing the lock button in the arm rest either while parked or while driving. This is a significant safety issue, as well as a security issue - car alarm cannot be set since the driver's door won't lock.
