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.

2004 Honda Element Owner Comments

Element LX 2.4L 4

I will tell you this is the worst vehicle I have ever purchased. I was leaving the grocery store when my driver door lock stopped working. I have a broken back and other injuries. I have had to spend the past two months climbing in and out of the passenger's side to lock my car, which can now only be done by closing the driver's side door and THEN pushing down on it. This is mentally and physically exhausting. I will forever boycott Honda for how they treated me over the ONCE WEEKLY REPAIRS! I AM INTO A 7,000$ VEHICLE FOR 11,000$ IN ONLY FOUR MONTHS!
