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.

2007 Honda Element Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 22,000 miles


Premature failure of rear passenger disc brake at 22000 miles. Loud grinding noise noticed coming from rear passenger wheel. Brought to dealer immediately. Rear passenger rotor and both rear pads needed to be replaced, front brakes fine upon inspection. After arguing with the service department got the repair bill down from $505 to $65. Upon further research, I feel that the dealer just treated the symptom and not the cause of the problem and this is likely to occur again. Not sure if this is related to the recent braking recall for Honda Elements and oddysseys or not, but just wanted to make a record of my experience for those who may have had to cover the full cost of their repair.
