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.

2005 Honda Element Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 162005

Element 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 760 miles


While making a left turn in my 2005 Honda Element, I turned too sharply, causing the left front wheel to drive over a large piece of a previously broken street lamp that was on the corner of the street. Though I was only traveling at 10-15 mph, the car overturned and fell on its side. There were no other vehicles involved. There was some body damage and two broken windows, and some damage to the front wheels/axle of the vehicle. The car is currently being repaired.
