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.

Pilot 6-cyl

  • 95,000 miles
The transmission in my Honda Pilot broke at 100K miles. The same thing happened to my 2002 Honda Odyssey and Honda covered the repair because they knew that there were defects. Well the same defects caused the Pilot's transmission to become fully inoperable. But this time Honda will not cover it. Please note that the Pilot and Odyssey are made on the same platform and have the same parts. Honda knows they have a faulty transmission and won't extend the warranty as they have in the past.

Pilot 4WD

  • miles
This is regarding my Honda Pilot LX 4WD 2007 model. 5 out of 10 times when I put my car in reverse it will move forward by a few feet, I have to then break and after this the car will reverse properly. This happens even if I am trying to reverse on a downward slope.
