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

In May 2007, U-haul of kingston, NY installed a trailer hitch on my 2004 Honda Pilot. On April 4,2008, my turning signals stopped working and I smelled a burning electrical smell. I scheduled a service appointment with my local Honda dealer for April 8, 2008. I stopped using the vehicle. The car alarm began to go off intermittently, without provocation. When we tried to start the car to bring it to the service appt., it would not start. It was towed to the dealership. The service tech's localized the smell to the rear of the car and began investigating the trailer hitch installation. The "high energy 3 to 2 taillight converter" had overloaded and the casing around the unit had melted through.
