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 #2

Nov 152014

Element LX 2.4L 4

  • Manual transmission
  • 153,000 miles


My dashboard lights come on, off, stay off for periods of time. Do not know the fix and how much to fix. I no longer want to fix things on the car and have decided to take a huge loss and trade it in.

problem #1

Jan 012010

Element ES V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 56,000 miles

The light around the fan dial when out, Honda dealer say it is some kind of fuse that needs to be replace, I was told it would be costly to remove the panel and replace the fuse. When I hit the dial a few times the light around it will come on. I think there is a short some where. This is a problem that I feel should not be happening.
