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 CR-V Owner Comments

CR-V 4-cyl

After driving my new Honda CR-V for 4 weeks, 3 to 4 times a week I began to feel sick. I experienced severe headaches, nausea, burning sensation in my sinuses and throat, over-all weakness. This continued for 5 weeks until I was so sick that I stayed home in bed for 3 days in mid March. Then when I drove the car again after returning to work I again got very sick and it was at that point that I suspected that the car was somehow the cause. I saw my gp doctor, explained my symptoms and he confirmed that the chemical emissions coming from the new materials and adhesives in the interior of the car could be the cause. As long as I do not drive the car more than once a week and do so with all of the windows open I do not get sick. I have read reports that indicate that it will take 6-8 months before the harmful chemical levels drop to acceptable levels. Also, the reports say that if the car is parked in the sun, the heat intensifies the toxic chemical levels and that this can last up to 3 years. Because this has made me so very sick I felt that I should report it.
