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.

At random intervals, my 2003 Honda Pilot will make a faint rumbling/shuddering noise. The car itself does not shudder or change handling, it is just a noise, and only lasts a second or two. The rpm indicator dips slightly when this noise is heard, and it goes away as soon as I take my foot off the gas. Usually does not return. Happens between 25 and 40 mph. Sporadic... happens less often in cold weather and after car is serviced (oil change, fluid and tire pressure checks). Mechanic has not been able to duplicate.
