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.

problem #3

The heater/defroster failed to operate as it had in the past on December 6, 2013. Previous to that date the air conditioner failed to cool properly starting in August, 2013. Hazy white material coated the inside of the windshield requiring constant wiping so we ceased using the air. Over a several week period in fall 2013 the left side heater/defroster failed to heat the left side of the car and the windshield defroster failed requiring us to stop the car and wipe the outside of the left side of the windshield. The right side of the cabin heater blew some hot air and some hot air reached the inside of the windshield. The dealer service manager at schaumburg Honda listened to my complaint and after several minutes returned to tell me all operations were normal and I needed to use the recirculation to equalize cabin temperature. I immediately traded the car since the windshield was unable to defrost and cabin to heat. Search google under " heater on CR-V doesn't work" to see multiple stories of same an videos of attempts like mine to work heater/defroster complaints.

On the driver side, cold air blows close to the driver side door. Unable to make it warm. Very uncomfortable in the winter. I see that this is happening to someone else.

Driver side does not blow hot air, the car blows hot air on the passenger side but cold air on the driver side, its difficult to drive car in cold weather conditions due to this issue, as legs and hands become numb due to cold air blow on drivers side, which will potentially lead to pull over many times while driving or may lead T crash in the future, many 2012 CRV models have this issue. A recall should be called and the issue fixed immediately, thanks
