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 4-cyl

Design problem: On my 2004 Honda Element, the turn signal indicator is not loud enough to hear, or bright enough to see. Furthermore, it seems the (automatic) switch to turn the turn signal off is not adjusted properly. The result of these design flaws is that I find that my turn signal is left on after making turns that are < 90 degrees. After reviewing this problem with the dealer, they said nothing could be done about the problem. Reccomendation: Make all turn signals meet minimum audible/ visual standards and have time out devices that automatically turn off turn signals after a period of time.
