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.

This car only has one adjustment for both the high and low headlights. Currently the low beams are adequate when using factory setting. When high beams are selected, the near vision of the road is lost and the high beams shine too high. If adjustment is made to lower the high beam so that it provides distance vision and road vision then it lowers the low beam vision of the road to a few feet in front of the car. Both conditions are a safety issue for me. Only an unacceptable compromise of the height adjustment must be made to have some use of both high and low beams. I took the car back to the dealer and they said the lights were within specs after shinning the lights on to the garage door with it closed. Not very scientific method for adjusting the light settings and leaves a lot of room for error. My only choice is to drive with both settings being a compromise. All the cars I have owned for the past 55 years have had adjustments for both. I can only assume Honda felt it an acceptable safety risk and money saver for them for drivers to only have one adjustment for the headlights. I am attaching the service report from todays visit to my dealer.

2014 Honda CRV: In Feb 2015 windshield wipers mostly do not work at all or they work intermittently in cold weather...especially dangerous and frightening when they stopped during several snowstorms allowing no visibility. After making a long drive to fort wayne don ayres ( and trying to find a day when both wipers and I were not working and that it was not snowing on the interstate) the wipers started working again after the CRV was driven into their garage. Had to bring it back when wipers not working, we were told. In the meantime CRV was not safe to drive in snowstorms. On second visit they discovered that the motor on the wipers had to be replaced. A little nuisance problem to them but very frightening to me when driving blind in snowstorms. Lucky not to have had a wreck or even a stroke from the frustration of spending so much money on a vehicle to stay safe in winter weather...only to have nonfunctional wipers that make it undependable in winter weather. Hope this will be helpful to someone.

The contact owns a 2014 Honda CR-V. the contact stated that while driving at 25 mph and operating the windshield wiper, the driver's side wiper blade pushed water back over the driver's side of the windshield causing a visibility hazard.

The failure mileage was 2,668...updated 09-11-14 updated 12/18/2014

This letter is to report my dissatisfaction with my 2014 Honda crvs driver side, outside, rearview mirror. At the least, the distortion of this design is a distraction, at the worst it is clearly a safety issue with the inability of the driver to quickly determine what is being reflected in this mirror. Please offer a replacement mirror without the split designed reflecting surface.

Driver wiper blade is 26 inches long. Passengers blade is 16 inches long. This size difference leaves a water line on passengers side and waits for the drivers wiper to remove it. This is extremely annoying during moderate or heavy rainfall. I feel this is poor engineering on Honda part and an immediate recall should E issued.

The windshield wiper causes visibility problems when it comes back to the center. The rain was mild to moderate and the wiper pushed the water to the side of the windshield, as expected, then at it returned to the center, it pulled water back over the drivers side of the windshield so that I could not see. Is there a recall for the wiper system?
