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.

The dealer and later on Honda engineers have balanced/rotated the tires 5 times, they have replaced rack and pinion spring, hubs, changed rotors, installed new rear wheel centering rings & body shims, and replaced original tires with new more expensive tires. Still the SUV vibrates as if its going to fall apart and the steering wheel shimmies dangerously at speeds greater than 55, becoming worse between 65 and 75 mph. I have checked numerous websites on the internet and have found several people with the same problem. One in Texas was lucky enough to have Honda buy back her Passport for testing to see if they could figure out what is going on. We took the car to arbitration by the BBB and even though they only tested it for 25 minutes and even though we showed that the steering wheel shimmied and the car vibrated they later on concluded that they felt no vibration and sided with Honda. Stating that the Passport is after all a truck and vibration is to be expected.
