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: 2011 Honda CR-V owners are reporting problems where the engine revs when braking.

Our data is showing early signs of a defect trend, so that's why we've flagged the 2011 CR-V with our "Beware of the Clunker" rating. Time will tell whether this continues to be a problem, & if so, whether Honda will be able to identify the problem & fix it.

I was driving out of a parking lot of an outdoor shopping mall, suddenly the car did not move at all. I shifted to L1 to see how it would react. No movement. Shifted to L2, still the car did not budge at all. Finally, I shifted to R, then, it moved backward. I put the shift into D, and then O.K. I remember, in the past, the car hesitated to start out after a stop at intersections. I contacted the local dealer. They say they cannot do much because the problem has to be replicated to diagnose it. I told them, I or any one could replicate the problem. Anyway, I told them I am bringing in my car tomorrow. But I am afraid if the same problem happens on the busy street on my way to the dealer. I will appreciate to let me know if any one had experienced the problem. If no one has reported so far, I would like this problem registered on your data base. Thank you.
