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.

CR-V 4-cyl

  • 5,000 miles


I paid cash for a new 2012 CR-V ex L with nav. Within a few months of purchase, the car broke down. I stopped for gas and it would not start. I am a single female and had to walk in the dark to walmart, buy jumper cables and flash someone down for a boost. Took the car to the dealer and they stated nothing was wrong with the car. It keeps happening over and over again. It has broken down several times and each time I take it to the dealer, they say nothing is wrong with it. I've had to pay out of pocket for a tow truck and repairs that still did not fix the problem. I took it to another Honda dealership and it broke down while at the dealer. It would not start. Was completely dead. They ran several test and like the other dealer stated they can not find anything wrong with it. Less than three weeks later, it broke down again. It is still in the shop. Been there for 2 weeks and they still have no clue whats wrong with the car. Honda tried to start the car yesterday and it would not start, completely dead. They have checked everything (battery, alternator, recalls, electoral, etc.) several times and it comes back saying good condition. Something is wrong with this car and Honda won't admit it or take responsibility. It is obviously something wrong with this vehicle.

CR-V 4-cyl

  • 2,000 miles
I purchased a new 2012 CRV in March, 2012 & occasionally at lower speeds it would hesitate for a couple seconds before responding to giving it gas, especially when turning a corner. A couple times I was almost rear ended due to the hesitancy. At that time I thought I had bad gas causing the problem, especially since it only did it perhaps 5 times in the first 15,000 miles & I was unable to duplicate the problem immediately after. Recently around 20,000 miles it seemed to be increasing the frequency that it was happening, so on 11-29-2013 I inquired at the Honda dealer & was told that they had received complaints about it from others but had no solution. They suggested that I might avoid using the econ button since that seemed to be part of the problem. They was also another gentleman at the dealership at the same time with a 2012 CRV & he had the same problem but with greater frequency than what I was having. I just returned from a trip of about 1,800 miles & the frequency has increased dramatically, 6-8 times during the trip. During heavy traffic I disengaged the econ button, but I still continued to have the problem of it hesitating even with the econ button disengaged. On 12-10-2013 I was back at the dealership for maintenance & told them that the frequency was increasing; they said they could not duplicate it & had no know solution to the problem. They are saying that the problem has to do with "gray matter" in the computer system that allows it to achieve maximum efficiency, whatever that means. I am now fearful of turning left if there is oncoming traffic or pulling out into traffic.
