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.

2008 Honda Pilot Owner Comments

problem #4

Jul 252016


  • 140,000 miles


The L-bracket that secures the front drivers seat to the seat frame broke - it sheared away from the rivets that attached to the front left of the drivers seat and the seat is now loose. This is a huge safety concern as the seat rocks back and forth when turning and accelerating. A Honda dealer quoted a price of $3000 to replace the defective seat frame. This seems to be a frequent issue with older Honda Pilot.
