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.

2004 Honda Pilot Owner Comments

problem #2

May 102008


  • 53,000 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Honda Pilot V6. The vehicle was parked when the contact observed that the interior front driver and passenger chrome door handle exhibited a cracking and separation. There was also a sharp edge on the chrome plate surface. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer on two separate occasions for the identical failures with replacement of the front driver and front passenger side handle. The driver and passenger side occupant sustained minor injury to their finger from the defective door handle. The first occurrence was repaired under the service warranty. However, the second service repair cost was in the amount of $40. The failure mileage was 25,000. The current mileage was 53,000. The VIN was unavailable.
