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.

2008 Honda Element Owner Comments

problem #1

May 212010


  • 57,000 miles


I purchased a used Honda certified 2008 Honda Element from Honda dealership in December 2009. Attempted to use air conditioner for the first time May 2010. Air conditioner did not work. I took car to dealership and was told that a rock damaged condenser. To my amazement, the condenser is in the front of the car, and oem grill is totally non effective in offering protection. The cost of repair is approximately $750. I looked on the internet and discovered that numerous owners have the same complaint. This is clearly a design flaw. It is highly likely that I would pay for the repair only to have it happen again.
