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.

2008 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

problem #1

May 272012

CR-V 4-cyl

  • 39,240 miles


5-27-12, my husband was driving our CR-V 2008 within the city limits of jax. Bch, fl. He slowed from 15 to 2 mph, turning a corner, and the rear hatch window exploded. A large basket-ball shaped circle hole appeared in the rear window. The glass from the hole exploded outside the vehicle. Immediately 3/4 of the remaining window glass dropped from inside the rear window frame onto the vehicle floor. He checked for outside car glass debris, then drove the car to our condo less than a mile away. We covered the hole with a garbage bag and duct tape for the drive to our covered garage at home in orange park, fl. Since it was memorial day wk-end, we knew that no repairs could be made until the holiday was over. Also, a tropical storm was headed towards jax. Today, I called steve lucas Honda in orange park, fl where previous oil changes were made, and have been waiting three hours for a return call from their service manager re: This occurrence, also for their recommendation for a window replacement co. This is most alarming, for this very same thing happened to me while I was driving when the car was less than 2 months old, in a heavy rainstorm on the interstate headed to amelia island, fl. I pulled over to the side of the road, and my friend met me, bringing a garbage bag and duct tape, and we taped it for my return to jax. Fl. we'd purchased the vehicle at atlantic Honda, jax, fl. I called and reported it to them. The service MA. Said he'd never heard of this happening, and recommended a glass replacement company for repairs. Since this 2nd occurrence, we are very alarmed and do not now feel safe in our vehicle. The window replacement the 1st time was right at $500. After reading on line of similar incidences occurring, we feel that there is definitely a safely issue defect. Honda needs to look into this matter quickly.
