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

Feb 082012

Pilot EX 3.2L V6

  • Manual transmission
  • 110,000 miles


Many of the panel control lights are burned out and the remaining ones are dimming. I tried to replace any burned out fuses, but they all seem to be in working order. It's annoying, especially when driving at night, to see half of the panel lights out. Luckily, I know what many of the buttons do and don't really need the lights, but it makes the car look raggedy, and not well-cared for. For it being a 2003, it still looks good, and runs well, but when other people get into the car, I feel a little embarrassed. I don't want to pay a mechanic for what should seem like an easy fix. It's bad enough I have to give up my car for a whole day to have the brights repaired.
