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.

When car is on, stationary & driving for both issues: Noxious smelling fumes since I got the car. Had it check by Honda dealer in 2011 and was told that there was no problem. I often get nauseated, but my daughter and husband gets very nauseated and headache, general un-wellness all the time they are in the car. It seems to be getting worst. This car also has a vibration problem that has always been a part of this model as well.

I purchased this car on 3/26/10 based upon performance ratings boasted by Honda. There have been manufacturers defects from the start. Currently about 118,000 miles. Early on I started hearing pinging sounds under the hood. Honda dealer said I was low on oil, put a quart in, and the sound stopped. He advised to put oil in whenever the sound occurred. This was before my first oil change. I continued to add oil as the sound re-occurred, 2-4 quarts between oil changes. I repeatedly questioned the consumption but no malfunction was found. July of 2011 Honda acknowledged the problem with (tsb#11-033). In November 2011, the dealer did an oil consumption software update. At this time there was no recall. The continual cost for synthetic oil remained and the oil light never came on. An oil consumption recall issued in 2015. The car failed the oil test Honda did required service as per recall protocol. The tech indicated the catalytic converter needs to be replaced but was out of warranty. Honda agreed to pay 50% of the cc repair. I declined since I have no money for this due to unemployment, nor should I put one cent into a car that has been defective from the start. My car was also recalled for takata airbags. Honda provided a rental car for 2.5 months. I picked up the car and now the engine light is on, brakes malfunctioning and compromised cc. It is not safe to drive. I have been driving a car with a substantial defect from the day one. I have spent countless dollars on oil. There have been two recalls. The car is no longer safe or dependable due to cc and brakes. I am concerned about engine longevity. I will never be able to drive this vehicle without being fearful. I feel it is Honda's responsibility to make me whole and provide the type of vehicle I signed up for. Please advise next steps to bring about a resolution in the immediate future.

Honda dealership does not have airbag parts nor does it know when if ever the parts will be available; dealership should be instructed to disable the killer airbag until the parts become available.

The vehicle filed Virginia safety inspection because the driver's seat belt was severely frayed. The vehicle has only 23,008 miles on it. The repair shop installed a new seatbelt (genuine Honda part) and advised me to contact Honda. The repair shop returned the defective seat belt to me to aid in my claim. I contacted Honda of North America and was advised to see my local dealership (hall Honda). At the Honda dealership I was told they would not "touch" something that had already been replaced. I then called Honda North America back and informed them of hall's verdict. The situation has not been resolved at this point, but I wanted to report this in case there may be other owners with the same issue, their safety may be jeopardized as well.

Air conditioning blowing cold and hot; many reports of this on websites regarding 2010 Honda CRV. The blower is working fine but the air conditioning goes from cold to neutral over and over again with no other symptoms. Vehicle is on and in motion when this happens. There is no recall that I can find regarding the situation.

Of 2009, the 2009 models and before had recalls for this problem, I was wondering if my car has the same problem, I checked the heater it orks just fine.

Driver side door actuator is malfunctioning. Unable to lock door with key fob, have to manually lock it. Class action lawsuit was for the 2007 and 2008 model, however the company is still using the defect part in newer models. Waiting for the other door to malfunction and if it persist it might cause a fire in the door. Big safety concern, guess the government will wait until someone dies before recalling this problem. This is a known problems for the crvs, look at the class action lawsuit.

The ac compressor failed. The mechanic said that the car should not have this problem at this mileage and year. I checked online and saw that it was a problem that many people have dealt with but Honda has not yet issued a recall for the 2010 model.

It was pouring rain and I had gone through water. I stopped at a traffic light waiting to turn right, the light changed and the car would barely move. But when it did and I stopped at the next light, approx. 1/2 mile down the road again it would barely move and I do mean barely. The person behind me got out and pushed me out of the road by hand. Both the "low oil pressure indicator" and "charging system indicator" lights were on. I turned the car off for a few minutes and then it started again and ran fine. Luckily I wasn't on the freeway. I took it to the dealer who said it was probably "just a fluke". well low and behold on July 23, 2015 I had to drive thru blinding rain and when I drove thru approx. 6" of water on the road, the car stalled out again. It started after a few minutes and then stalled again. I pulled over and sat for a few minutes and then it started fine and has run fine since. This makes me feel very unsafe. Is there anything I can do to get this problem solved because one can't help driving in rain at times.

Driver side door will not unlock with power button or manually with a key. Called Honda customer service and they will not cover the expenses to fix, eventhough they've had a recall on the same issue. Unfortunately, my VIN number apparently has no complaints. Dont know what to do!?
