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.

Takata recall. The contact owns a 2007 Honda Pilot. The contact stated that the check engine warning indicator illuminated. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where the failure could not be diagnosed. The contact received notification of NHTSA campaign number: 16V344000 (air bags); however, the part to do the repair was unavailable. The manufacturer exceeded a reasonable amount of time for the recall repair. The manufacturer was not notified. The failure mileage was approximately 300,000. Parts distribution disconnect.

In 2009 I had a spark plug blow out of the housing and I lost pressure. Tried to change plugs to be able to drive to dealership. Car was towed to Honda and top manifold was replaced and I was charged $3500. Since these were the original oem plugs it was not time to change them. Honda was contacted and they offered to pay half. I have had nothing but problems with this car since. Car was maintained regularly and had reg oil changes. There have been many diagnostics performed and it would say that car was misfiring on all cylinders. I have had the pistons repaired elsewhere even though Honda said it was fixed. Three weeks ago my check engine light came on, then the vsa and warning triangle came on and I lost power. Took it and the diagnosis is as follows: Damaged lifter from low oil pressure, vtec solenoid replacement, corrected oil pressure issues, still getting bleed-back from one lifter. TS1145 variable camshaft timing solenoid, remove and replace variable valve timing solenoid. This cost $736. What has to be done to fix this recurring problem. I am on a small fixed income and you would think if you buy a $30,000 car new you should count on dependability. For heaven's sake, "it's a Honda".

Vsa, check engine lights came on, looks like same problem 2005 Pilot were recalled for. Vehicle brake on its own, complete loss of power, happened 2months a go and again 2/3/15. Had towed to shop to have scanned. Very scary situation.
