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.

2006 Honda Pilot Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 202014


  • 120,000 miles


The rear door/hatch of our 2006 Honda Pilot has an issue with the latching mechanism. The actual mechanism on the rear hatch has become disconnected from the frame and is able to move freely about. This causes the rear hatch to not latch, latch partially, or latch but still allow the rear hatch to slightly move. The latching mechanism is only being held in place (in a confined area) by the plastic paneling of the car. Since the latch is no longer attached to the frame, the movement of the mechanism determines if the rear hatch is going to latch or not. When it is latched, the only item securing the mechanism is the plastic paneling. The mechanism itself is not defective or broken however; the way the mechanism has been secured seems to be the issue. The most concerning aspect is how a door latch mechanism could become disconnected and allow for an incident to possibly occur.
