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.

Defect: Mechanical door lock on 2004 Honda Element failure. The Honda dealership has told me this is a chronic problem of one or more of the tumblers not moving. I have found over 300+specific emails on automobile problems regarding this specific problem (Element and CRV) and the corporation has not addressed this as a mechanical defect that they should replace. Being unable to unlock the door could pose a significant safety problem should rapid access be needed. This is an acknowledged and documented problem. The corporate office directed me to this website to lodge my concerns stating that NHTSA directives were the only way they would respond to this problem.
