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 #2

Pilot 4WD 6-cyl

  • 4,737 miles


Although my Honda dealer has replaced the driver side seat cover on my 2003 Honda Pilot that also houses the controls for the power driver saet 4 times in the past 15 months with no problem, I feel this defect needs to be addressed because if this cover fails while driving the power seat could start to move in any direction. The website "" Has many complaints about this in thier chat forum, also my dealership told me they had to replace quite a few of these, there was even a backlog on ordering me a new one this last time.
