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.

I like many other 2003 Honda Element owners have an issue with my driver side lock. Key wont always go in and if does go in wont un lock the door. I have to go through the passenger side door. I have seen many complaints online about this and hope to see more on here so we can get a recall on this issue.

My ignition on my 2003 Honda Element, was no longer working, not only could you pull out the key when the engine was running after awhile the key would no longer even turn in the ignition even if you have warranty and paid extra for apparently the best coverage, they find a way the you have to pay out of your pockets, my ignition replacement cost me $1,000 and now there is a recall out on it, and again apparently my VIN number is not included in the recall. The brakes and the brake disc had to be replaced every 6 month. The service for Honda is the [xxx], I personally would never buy a Honda again. My windshield also cracked I have been a Honda service dept often for follow up on the truck they seen my windshield was cracked but would never tell me it was under warranty until the warranty expired. This was my first time ever to buy a brand new vehicle I wanted to feel safe and security, being stuck in a public parking lot a night because the stupid key wouldn't work did not impress me at all, there was a little garage close buy but he couldn't help me because apparently Honda does not deliver there parts to other garages, had to get the vehicle towed and stuck with out a car for a couple of days, because Honda do not have loaners.
