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.

2003 Honda Element Owner Comments

problem #1

Element EX V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 88,000 miles

A/C Died! So maybe 88,000 miles sounds like a lot, but I drove my Element in New England so it is fair to say I used the a/c during 3 months out of the year! Now they are saying my compressor died and it will be $1200 to fix.

Judging from other internet posts, I am concerned that replacing only the compressor won't fix it. I fear that many headaches and thousands in expenses are to follow. This is WAY below what I expected from Honda. I am VERY disappointed.
