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.

  • 45 miles
A newly purchased Honda CRV 4WD 2008 model in manila. Driving was practically immobilized when malfunction indicator lamp(mil), vehicle stability assist (vsa) light, vsa activation light, and ABS light were illuminated was an abnormal gear engagement, we were nearly hit from behind because of delayed, short-intermittent engine acceleration. Most of the warning lights deal with wheels and brakes but practically there was no engine rev when you step on the gas pedal.

problem #1

Jan 282008

CR-V 4WD 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,082 miles
After parking car and while braking to put it in "park" gear, the CRV ex-L raced forward at high speed and veered to the right. Upon impact, the vehicle then went in reverse and when braking, the car races instead of stopping. Upon hitting the back curb and a vehicle, the car was thrust forward and raced forward. CRV ex-L would not respond to braking. Updated 04/25/08
