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.

2007 Honda Pilot Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 092009


  • 55,000 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Honda Pilot. While driving approximately 55 mph on normal road conditions, the engine began to rev highly when the accelerator pedal was depressed. Suddenly, the transmission failed to respond. The driver was able to pull over to the side of the road. The failure occurred without warning. Roadside assistance was called to the scene and the vehicle was towed to an authorized dealer for diagnostic testing. The dealer stated that the failure was related to the factory clip attached to the clamp of the transmission line. There was excessive fluid leaking from the transmission. The clip should have been removed by the manufacturer at the time of the vehicle's production. The vehicle was repaired. The failure mileage was 55,000 and current mileage was 58,000.
