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.

Stopped vehicle, turned off vehicle and removed key. Later got into car and started it up found it. Attempted again not in park and it was able to replicate it. Took vehicle to dealer, they were able to replicate it, wanted almost $850 to repair and was told it was not considered a safety issue so there was no recall. They recommend the mechanical portion of the ignition switch be repaired. Unable to afford the repair so still occurring. Current mileage is 118,000+ miles.

- the driver thought she put the a 2004 Honda Pilot in park, in a driveway which sits on a hill. The driver removed the key from the ignition. The contact later found that the vehicle had rolled down the hill and hit an object. The contact discovered that the vehicle was in neutral. The contact drove the vehicle to the dealer. The vehicle was diagnosed as having a bad ignition switch. The contact stated the key should not have been able to be removed from the ignition while the vehicle was in neutral. Updated 2/22/2007 - the manufacturer refused to fix the vehicle free of charge because the vehicle was out of warranty.
