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

Feb 012014

Pilot 3.8V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 140,000 miles


I just got done in Nov of last year getting the Timing belt package, drive belts , head cover , belt , water pump, transmission , differentials, 2 front engine mounts, steering and suspension lower ball joint boots, tie rod boots, bushings, breaks, front swaybar, rear break pads and a oil change..... COST $3,234.29. I am a mother of four with a disabled husband .... Fixing all of this took my entire savings............

Now for the last few months I have been hearing a noise in the rear of the Pilot .... It started out on big bumps and some turns being very abnormal. Now it is getting louder and I took it into tire place and had them check out my shocks and make sure my tires are on tight .... They and I have NO clue what is wrong nor do I have the money to fix it....... I can't believe that in the year that we have owned the Pilot that all this has gone wrong.......... I do not 4 wheel drive or do any hard driving so what caused the problem is beyond me .... HONDA should check into this..!!!!!
