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.

I was driving down a gravel road and the gauge needles on both the speedometer and tachometer fell off. We were using the vehicle in accordance with how it was designed to be used. We were forced to finish our trip without knowing our speed or rpms (a major safety hazard). The Honda dealer says the entire instrument cluster must be replaced in order for the gauges to display accurate information again. This is obviously a major design flaw by Honda which has serious safety concerns.

2007 Honda Element. Consumer writes in regards to the instrument cluster. The consumer stated as she was backing out of the driveway the RPM in the instrument cluster fell out. The next day, as she pulled out of the driveway, the temperature and speed needles fell out. The consumer went to get gas, and after filling the tank, the gauge only showed 1/2 tank. The consumer believed the gas needed would eventually fall out, too.

Took vehicle into Honda service dept. As needles had fallen off of tachometer and heat indicator and speedometer was not reading correctly. Service tech took car for drive to test brakes for a recall issue and hit the dashboard when told of needle issue. Rest of needles fell off so now I have no idea of speed or gas and the lights shine directly in drivers face when driving at night which makes it very difficult to see. Honda says there was an update (which has expired) and it will cost me $1,000. To fix the gauge issue. I find it hard to believe that this is not a safety recall and merely an 'update'! this issue needs to be addressed by Honda as this is not a maintenance issue but a manufacturing defect. Checking online has revealed this is a common occurrence for this particular model.
