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 #1

Oct 062003

Pilot 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,275 miles


While traveling 50 mph another driver turned in front of my Pilot without signaling. The whole right front of my vehicle was pushed in. The problem was that the air bags didn't deploy and according to witnesses the seat belt didn't lock. As a result I bounced off steering wheel twice. 2 days later I received a recall notice from Honda saying that air bags are not deploying or deploying late. I believe that my injuries would have been less severe had the air bags deployed and/or the seat belt locked.
