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.

Pilot 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 450 miles
A brand new (2 weeks) Pilot with less than 500 miles. I am now hearing a clunking/thumping noise when I shift the gear from D->N and then in to R. this noise is not heard when shifting just from N->R. looks like this noise is coming from under the hood. I didn't expect this kind of problem so soon in a brand new vehicle.
