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 #4

Apr 042008

Pilot 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,245 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Honda Pilot. He checked the head rest and noticed that when he got into the vehicle again, he hit his head at one spot about 1 inch down from the top of his head. The consumer stated the front head restraints can not be adjusted. The second and third row seats were fine. The manufacturer advised him to take the vehicle to the dealer. The dealer stated that nothing could be done because the head rest was designed in that manner. The current and failure mileages were 35,245. Updated 06/03/08.

Front seat head rests do not adjust upward for tall people (5'-11') and taller causing head restraint bar to rest on top of persons head. This potentially will causing neck or spinal injury injury if vehicle is hit from the rear. The top bar acts as a pivot point with no rear neck support.
