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.

Since the date of purchase we have smelled fuel within the passenger area coming from the fresh air vents. We must actually air out our garage (which has no other sources of gasoline within) in order to get the smell out of the garage. This process becomes very difficult during our Wisconsin winter. The dealership implied that they are waiting for a fix to the problem but american Honda motor co. In California believes the vehicle is performing as expected. At no time is the odor of fuel or exhaust in the passenger cabin acceptable or safe.

Vehicle "stalls" when: Backing out of driveway when accelerating after slowing down when making left or right turns after stopping or slowing down stalling does not occur every single time but occurs regularly. One one occation stall occured while making a left turn resulting confusion between driver in oncoming traffic and myself as I could not control the vehicle stall duration is between 1 to 3 seconds and it seems to be getting longer as the parts or system components are wearing. Stalls occur mostly in city driving I suspect that the trouble is within the "drive by wire" or the cvt

I bought a 2016 CRV touring two month ago, the next day I realized the entire car has a strong vibration, I took it to the dealer and they told me that issue it was for the 2015 crvs, I have the same vibration. I'm so frustrated they said its normal but is not! I searched on youtube and other owners are going through this too. When I. turn off the A/C the revs goes to 500 and the vibration increase, the ac is not good it doesn't blow cool air ( I have a 2010 grand vitara and the ac works better)

Seats are very uncomfortable. I cannot drive for more than 15 min and my right leg is numb and I have pain in the right buttocks. It is bad enough that I have to constantly move around to relieve the pain and discomfort.

I bought a 2016 touring CRV in December. The vibration issue that plagued the 2015 CRV is supposed to have been fixed in the 2016 models. Well, it's not. I didn't feel it when I test drove the car, but the one I got clearly vibrates when at idle. I brought the car back to the dealer, but they told me it was normal. Well, I've driven lots of cars in my life, and it is not normal.
