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. Notes: While the 2009 CR-V still came equipped with tires that wear out faster than my Grandpa after a turkey dinner, Honda did address an electrical problem with the door locks that plagued owners of previous model years.

2009 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

While stopping or stopped for traffic light(s), with foot on brake, engine revved up to 2K RPM without any action on my part. When light changed, and brake was released, acceleration and car performance became normal again. This has happened three separate times in the past six weeks. In addition, turning the A/C off or on had no effect on engine RPM. Note: During the anomaly, if transmission was moved from D to N, engine would rev up to 5K RPM, and would drop back to 2K RPM when transmission put back into D all this happened with foot still on the brake. For the record: Car was taken to Honda dealer twice for this anomaly, the memory dumped, and no data found. Honda claims there is nothing wrong with the car.
