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

  • 69,000 miles


After an accident on 4/24/08 in which my vehicle was rear ended after coming to complete stop for an emergency vehicle I was struck from behind at 50 mph. My vehicle's rear end was lifted off the ground placing all the weight on the front suspension before the rear came back down on the ground. Now my vehicle has had front suspension problems not limited to ball joint failure. My insurance company usaa has refused to repair my vehicle even though the person who hit me was convicted in court of the accident and her insurance company amica accepted 100 percent liability for the clients action.
