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.

2006 Honda Element Owner Comments

Honda Element (2006) has a power window regulator failure, driver's side (front left). Diagnosed as a problem with the window regulator cable. Repair expected to be around $300 - $400 at a local repair shop ($500 plus at the dealership). This same Honda Element has a cracked windshield that spontaneously cracked while driving down a toll road with no other cars within 20 car lengths and no visible rocks or other objects in the roadway. Honda Accord (1998) has all four windows with power window regulator failure. Each repair is just under $500 with tax at the dealership.

Power window regulator on front left window had to be replaced 11/2009. Power window failed to go up, diagnosed as broken window regulator cable. 5/2010 front right window failed to lift. Seems to be same problem with power window mechanism.

I have a 2006 Honda Element. The last few months I've had to replace both power side windows because the window regulator 'came apart.' The car is only 3 years old and for both windows to stop working around the same time makes me think it's a manufacturing situation.
