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

problem #1

In cruise control mode on highway, when set in the range of 50 to 65 miles per hour, the car sometimes suddenly accelerates by itself and keeps accelerating, even on the flat road. The speed change is fast, in a few seconds. For example, on a flat highway, set the cruise control at speed of 60 miles per hour. If that uncontrolled acceleration happens the speed would keep going up to 65, 70, even more miles per hour in a few seconds. Cancel cruise control or step on break would stop the problem. It happened about 10 times over the past half a year (I don't use cruise control that often). My best guess is probably 5% or more of the chance. Every time it happened I just cancel cruise control and reset. I consider it as a serious safety problem especially when cruising at 65 miles/hour and it goes out of control while the highway make turns. The car is 2009 Honda CRV.
