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.

Pilot ES 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 72,500 miles

I bought the vehicle in San Diego and the vehicle ran fine. I just moved to a humid climate (Guam) and the vehicle almost immediately began running rough. The electrical system started acting up. The VTM-4 system would engage automatically. When I would trouble shoot the problem, it would engage again a short time later. Does anyone know or had this problem. Is it the high humidity reaking problems with my vehicle???
