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.

Front wheel vibration. The front wheel on my Honda Pilot vibrates at 65-70mph, the Honda dealership has tried to solve the problem on six (6) occasions however they cannot findout what is causing the problem. Honda, corporate service is aware of the issue however, they cannot offer a solution either. Is this going to be another Ford Explorer tire-frontend problem"?" please advise.

I recently purchased a 2006 Honda Pilot and am experiencing extremely poor traction with the factory-installed good year integrity tires. They spin on takeoff in both dry and wet conditions, and handle poorly. I also have a loud humming noise that usualy occurs between 50 and 55 mph. The noise comes from the rear of the vehicle, getting louder and louder and ending abruptly. I've noticed that a quick romp on the accelerator causes it to end quicker. The dealer claims that it is a problem with speaker feedback and Honda has no corrective measure as of yet. However, I have had passengers sit in the rearmost seats and they confirm that the noise is not from the speakers but closer to the rear of the vehicle.

I recently purchased a new 2006 Honda Pilot. The vehicle came equipped with Goodyear integrity tires. I have had the vehicle in to the dealer service shop three times and I am going back for a fourth attempt to get the tires balanced. The dealer is working with me, but these tires are garbage. They can't be adequately balanced because they are defective.

Note: System did not let me put in the correct tire size 235/70/16. I purchased a brand new 2006 Honda Pilot ex and wanted to express my dissatisfaction with the tires that came with the vehicle. They are Goodyear integrity tires. I purchased the Pilot for a few reasons, one being that the vehicle has a 5 star safety rating which is not common among SUV vehicles and second because of Honda's reliability and craftsmanship. This is my 5th Honda that I have purchased and I have never owned anything but Honda's. I have to say that the Goodyear integrity tires that came with the vehicle are junk. I love the vehicle but hate the tires. I don't just hate the tires but I feel extremely unsafe driving my vehicle in the rain with these tires. The vehicle feels like at any moment it is going to hydroplane. Also, whenever I stop in the rain my ABS brakes are constantly being activated. I do not feel safe driving with these tires. I have looked on the internet at some Pilot and tire discussion boards and found similar complaints about these tires on other Pilot and also other vehicles (so it is not the vehicle but the tires).

My wife and I purchased a 2006 Honda Pilot in Dec 2005. Factory installed tires were Goodyear integrity. The vehicle daily looses traction and several times and lost control of vehicle. Traction is bad on wet and dry conditions. When contacting Honda corporate, they say it is the tire and that I should contact the tire manufacturer. Goodyear says that we need to work through Honda. Classic runaround. However, when I review the Goodyear web site, it provides tire recommendations for various vehicle types. When I review the Honda Pilot recommendation (with an SUV classification-which is appropriate according to the Honda web site, which labels the Pilot a SUV), the Goodyear web site does not recommend the Goodyear integrity. However, it you label the SUV a passenger car (which it is patently not), then the integrity comes up as the recommended tire. I have almost exhausted all my options and am left with frustration and concern. My wife or I will immanently be in an accident, and I will assure you that Honda will be culpable. I have attempted to resolve the issue by offering to pay the difference (which is 2X the price to the integgrity tires-which is why I suspect they are selling the vehicle with the significantly cheaper integrity tires) for the recommended tires, Honda and Goodyear are not listening.
