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 #3

I was driving on the highway in Florida. I had a 5 year old strapped in a booster seat in the third row of my 2006 Honda Pilot (she was sitting on the driver's side of the 3rd row). She told us that her seat belt just broke. We pulled over. Apparently the female buckle end came off the seat belt strap. I don't understand what happened, the loop in the buckle though which the strap goes through seems very corroded (not rust but a whitish powder). The buckle was loose and could simply slip off the strap. This could be very dangerous. I just looked it up and couldn't find any information on this. The buckle seems to have a serial number on it: 05322aahmam.

As I entered the car the and went to buckle the seat belt. I pushed gentle back on the seat back. At that point the seat back dropped back into the rear seat. When the dealer looked at it he advised me that the seat adjuster has failed. If the car was in a accident I would have been severely hurt. Honda usa will not do anything to help fix this major safety issue with their seat.

The contact owns a 2006 Honda Pilot. The contact's three year old child was seated behind the driver's seat. Directly behind the driver's head is a seat belt that is connected to the roof, which crosses into the middle rear seat. While the contact was driving 45 mph, the child was able to grab the seat belt. While playing with it, the seat belt somehow wrapped around the child's neck. The contact pulled the vehicle over, but was unable to unwrap the seat belt due to the connection of the seat in the vehicle. She had to cut the seat belt because the child was turning blue due to lack of oxygen. She called Honda and was informed that the seat belt was working properly and she should have been able to unlatch the seat belt. The VIN was unknown. The current and failure mileages were 34,000.
