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

While driving my 2007 Honda Element "cs", just after entering a freeway southbound, while getting up to freeway speed, a loud noise began to come from rear of vehicle as if a tire or tires were coming loose. Once hitting 55mph the vehicle began to shake somewhat, yet still controllable. I pulled over & inspected the tires & wheels and could not find anything wrong. Continued into next city to dealership where a four wheel alignment was done & all tires rotated. Now while on cross country trip on 20 May 2012, this same issue has occurred once again on a set of new tires. The cambers cannot be adjusted on this model & year vehicle. Honda has made no effort to remedy this problem. It was corrected in the 2008 models & subsequent models. The tires wear unevenly & "cup" & could cause the tires to blow, either at the same time, one at a time or even just one leaving driver in a position of being unable to control car from rapid deflation of exploding tire. I have spoken with the service writer at the dealership where I purchased my Element cs & he told me Honda is fully aware of this. I spoke with Honda America & was told they are fully aware of this & they did not think "... this is a life threatening issue." This issue is with the Honda Element cs only that I am aware of.
