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.

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.

On the morning of May 17, 2013, my wife, daughter and I were flying out of town. My wife was in the passenger seat and our daughter in the rear seat. We had a normal drive up to the airport. We parked at express South parking inside the dfw airport to catch the shuttle to our terminal. While my wife and I came out of our car and put our luggage in the shuttle, my daughter did not get out of the car. When we checked on her, we found that she was stuck in her seat and could not get out. It was a big surprise for us to find someone stuck in the car seat who could not get out. Although she had removed the belt from the buckle, she was stuck between the lap belt that was on her lap and the shoulder strap that had gone on her back side. She is of short height (5'1''). we found that the belt was locked and it had become a noose around her waist. We tried very hard to pull the belt to free her but it was very tightly locked and could not be pulled. This created a situation where the belt became a noose. It became a panic situation for us seeing our child stuck in the car and unable to move. Luckily, after a few minutes of trying, my wife realized that we had a pair of scissors in our luggage. We cut the belt to free her. Although we were lucky that my did not suffer any injury, this problem with belts can lead to a potentially very serious safety situation. For example, in case of an accident or fire, the passenger would not be able to get out of the car this will have serious and deadly consequences.

CR-V 4-cyl

In was exiting off of I 12 on millerville, in baton rouge, la., I stopped, turn left to check for traffic and when I turn back around I was crashing with the truck in front of me. When the police came he ask was I hurt I told him my chest was hurting because I hit my steering wheel. He ask if I was wearing my seat belt, I told him yes. When the to truck driver open my car door on the driver side to get in because he was preparing my car to be towed, that's when I saw that my seat belt had broken. The side panel inside the car that hold the seat belt had came open, the seat belt would not retract back in the panel, it was just sitting on the floor of my car. I then call the police officer to show him since he had question me about wearing my seat belt. The seat belt will have to be repair because it broke during the accident. I took a picture of the side panel and the seat belt. I would also like to say I have never seen this happen in a car before( in other car accidents) where the seat belt compartment comes a loose.

I recently purchased a brand new 2010 Honda CR-V ex-L on 29 May 2010. I didn't expect to have any problems with a brand new vehicle; however, I unfortunately discovered a very annoying problem with the front passenger's seat belt retractor. Similar to the problem discussed in the Honda service bulletin 05-073, a squeak or rattle is heard from the seat belt retractors while driving over bumps or rough roads. my problem comes from the front passenger seat and not the rear seats. I contacted the dealer I purchased the vehicle from, and they said the problem cannot be repaired. However, the service bulletin 05-073 states the issue was remedied by installing a rubber floor boot to insulate the retractors from the body.
