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.

I am the original owner of a 2004 Honda Pilot. We were driving down the highway about 65 mph and had what we thought was a blowout. Huge bang and thud. We went to put the spare on and saw that the rim had split in two right down the center groove, with two fist size holes on each side. The dealer said I must have hit something big, but I was in the car and know that we didn't. dealer said that he would cover it just this once and put a new rim and two new tires on the car. Dealer said that he was sending the rim back to Honda. Dealer said he had never seen anything like it in the 25 years of working with cars. I have never heard of a rim splitting in two and I know that if I was driving there would have been an accident.
