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.

2008 Honda CRV-compressor needs replacing 65,000 miles at the time the compressor went out. Honda warranty only covers 36,000 miles. Did not by extended warranty. Has not replaced part due to cost. Honda purchased at paris Honda has talked to them however, 1200 dollars for a rebuilt compressor to be installed and much higher for a new one. This is robbery and poorly built compressors. Is it alright from them to charge so much money for a vehicle with sorry service and parts?? if they are having so many compressor problems why not recall them all and fix the problem. I will never by another Honda and when asked I advice any one to stay away from the auto brand.
