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.

The contact owns a 2006 Honda Pilot. While driving 40 mph, the contact rear ended the preceding vehicle. It was a minor crash. She noticed smoke coming from the engine compartment of her vehicle followed by flames. She immediately had the vehicle towed and it is currently at the repair shop. A police report was filed. The vehicle was destroyed and she was informed that the failure was due to a design flaw. The current and failure mileages were 30,000.

Gas mileage for the vehicle is not as advertised. I am getting 20 mpg for mixed use driving (mostly highway). The epa estimates are 20/28.
