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

Jun 102011


  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


About a year ago, the radio on my 2004 Honda Pilot started shorting out while driving. At the same time a thump is heard in rear of car, and the ABS or brake light flashes on in the dashboard. Then after a second or two, it goes back as if nothing has happened. Then a few seconds later it happens again. It has been happening increasingly more in the past year. My car now has 87k miles on it, and I am the original owner. I have taken it in twice with a video of the problem and the Honda people have no idea what it is.
