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.

2003 Honda Pilot Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 012007

Pilot EX 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


The headrests on the 2003 Pilot cannot be adjusted to meet the back of the driver's or passengers' heads. I got rear-ended over a year ago in what should have been a minor accident. Instead, I have suffered continual neck problems and have had to use pain medication and to seek physical therapy as well as consultations with doctors.

Honda should recall this car and fix this problem - most cars have movable headrests and you can adjust them to provide adequate protection from whiplash. In addition, the seats are concave and the driver is forced to sit pitched forward in the seat since your back sinks into the seat back; this exacerbates the danger to the driver's neck in the event of rear end collisions.
