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.

1998 Honda CRV, with about 100,000 milage, engine light came on. Repaired the distributor sensor. Took it back four more times and the engine light continue to stay on. A week later, took it in to deale for a diagnostic, valve #3 & 4, needed to be replaced, they recommended a new cylinder head. Notified Honda manufacturer and they decided to pay half of the cost. I have always taken good care of my car, and have the invoices to proof it. I think Honda knows there is a manufacturing problem and should be responsible for the complete repair cost. I am still paying on my car and this is a financial burden for me and my family.
