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.

When on a curvy road the car sometimes makes loud noises thumping noises and the pansanger floor vibrates violently like the car is going to fall a part. Car is only 13 months old and I bought it brand new. It has 45K miles now but problem started at 30K miles. The dealer could not replicate the problem and denied that their was a problem.

The design is detrimental to a short person's (62 inch & under) safety. The starring does not go down far enough for the driver to see the road. Also the driver seat is tilted away from starring wheel. The headlight beam ends before the driver can see the road. I complained but they did not take any action to even check. If the starring wheel can be pushed further down and the length of the headlight beam could be extended further the driver would not see a dark road ahead of him/her. It is a crash waiting to happen. Please review this. I will be glad to answer any questions. Honda, as usual, does not admit and fix the safety issues brought to them.

I was driving on the interstate 90 when all of sudden eps( electronic power steering), vsa( vehicle stability assist) failure and low tire warning light came on. Steering became very hard to turn.when I took the car to dealer after one day of analysis they told that alignment of one the front tires was very off. Even though it is an warranty issue they refused to honor it and blamed me for bumping the vehicle. I called Honda customer service to report the problem.after one day some one from Honda customer support called and repeated the same thing which dealer only concern if the eps failure was the issue but instead of addressing issue they just tried to escape.

I bought at 2014 CRV end of Sept/Oct of 2013. Upon the first snow fall I drove the vehicle and had immediate problems. The car was not getting any traction, it was sliding around going down hills and upon trying to drive up hills it would stop without even trying to go up. It would stop and wheels would spin, the rear end spun to the side and I could not get anywhere. The amber AWD lights came on and flashed, combination of both scenarios. I finally got it into the dealership as the problem got worse. The rear differential has been deemed defective (overheating issue to point of almost glowing and fluid overheated). The other problem I have had is that if the car was put into 1st or 2nd gear to aid slowing down on a hill, even from a stopped position, it would not respond. The car sped up going down the hill in first gear to approximately 40mph even with the brake on, which would not engage and the anti-lock brakes were engaging and not even trying to stop the vehicle. The car behaved the same even if on flat ground that had even a dusting of snow or even a little gravel. The dealership gave me a courtesy 2014 same year as mine, it drove much better and much safer than mine performed after the first 2 days. I feel the car has more issues than just the differential and is a major safety hazard as the last 1-2 weeks the car has had no control in anything other than dry roads. It has almost wrecked more than once due to these issues. This vehicle is 3.5 months old and had under 10,000 miles on it and all of this has gone wrong since the beginning.

Accelerating up to travel speed on a highway the wheels start shimming we could not control the car. Talking to the dealer who said that they where aware of this and that snow & ice can pack into the rims causing the wheels to be unbalanced. I am 70 years old and do not think its safe for me to get out of the car on the highway to clean the wheels.
