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

Several months after buying our car in December of 2002, we noticed a clunking sound when we used the brakes when going forward. We were told this was normal and occurred after having just backed up. It was a transfer of the brakes from back to front. I had the service tech look at them and was told it was not a safety issues and Honda would not address it. I have since talked to several Honda owners who have never had this problem. Additionally, my brakes are getting worse and make the sound even if I don't back up first.
