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

problem #3

Jan 012006

Element 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 30,000 miles


Cracked windshield on the passenger side, broken driver's side visor and a horn that has one broken pitch, leaving the pitch very low, almost not noticeable. It has been that way for a year, but did not find this site until now. Too expensive to repair.

Element 4WD 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The contact owns a 2004 Honda Element. The current and failure mileage was 42,000. When he attempted to use the horn it was inoperable. Occasionally when the horn worked the sound was very low. The dealer advised the contact that the failure was not covered under the warranty. Updated 03/19/07.
