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 #1

Oct 072005

Pilot LX V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 38,000 miles


We have had several electrical issues with this car. Here they are:

1. We had 5 low beam bulbs burn out in the course of 4 months ==> no apparent reason

2. Our car will one it's own lock us out of our car. ==> It wasn't until we found that if we left the keys in the ignition it would no longer do it.

3. Our locks will suddenly unlock when making right turns. ==> It turns out that the door sensor was too far away from the Driver side door. Seems like the door is slowing separating from the car. Not noticeable from the outside. Put a piece of form between sensor and door to resolve the issue. This explains why the car is getting noisier. We hear more wind and outside traffic.

4. The idiot lights for a variety of "features" will periodically go off.

5. The Driver side seat no longer moves.
