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.

problem #2

Nov 012012

Pilot ES V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 128,000 miles


Back in November 2012, when I placed the car in park and left the car running it idles rough which caused the check engine light to come on. I brought the car to my mechanic and he told me that one of the sensors is off. It would cost $300 to replace. I have put a new transmission into this car and now this. I can't handle anymore issues. I could never take this car on a long trip. I am not completely confident that it would make it. My car only has 130,000 miles. This shouldn't be happening. I spent a lot of money on this car and it is suppose to last much longer then 130,000 miles.

Pilot ES 3.2L V6

Just moved to Guam from San Diego, where the vehicle ran fine. But since I moved to Guam, the engine has been acting up. When I would turn the A/C on, the engine would idol rough. So, I had to forget about the A/C running. Does the humidity have anything to do with this problem?
