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

Jan 102012

Element EX 4 cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 99,000 miles


My mechanic found this issue on a Honda Service Bulletin, but no recall. This is unacceptable as the issue is back again. Mechanic replaced the EDM (electrical distribution module). Less than 2 months later & I have NO low beams again. This is a very dangerous issue as the lights go out, one is in complete darkness until you flick to high beams. Eventually the high beams will go out too as it did the 1st time around. Cost me 160.00 to have this issue fixed & it's back again already??!! Obviously something else is causing the issue as the EDM keeps failing. I wanted to keep my Honda for another 10 yrs. Not looking good & rights to brag I own a Honda are looking bleak.
