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

  • 30 miles


Intermittent problem happened 4 times over 2 weeks while driving new vehicle (just purchased new) about 30 miles. Eco button is on. From full stop, when I step on gas pedal get a 1-2 sec hesitation; no engine rev up, no acceleration. Foot is not on the brake at time of gas pedal hesitation. It's a safety problem in traffic or especially when turning left in traffic. Local Honda dealer tells me this is a known problem to Honda and Honda is working on solution and recall repair.
