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.

The contact owns a 2008 Honda Pilot. The contact stated that while driving at approximately 65mph the low beam lights shut off and no warning lights were illuminated. The contact stated the high beam lights and the fog lights have to be used while driving at night. The vehicle was not taken to a dealer for testing. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and stated the vehicle was not included in any recalls. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure and current mileage was 76,000.

Climate control display lights are out. When driving at night I have to take my eyes off the road to turn my interior lights on, then take my eyes off the road again to find the appropriate button to adjust he heat or air. It's very dangerous constantly taking my eyes of the road, plus have to take my hands off the steering wheel multiple times to turn the interior light on & off to adjust the climate controls.

3rd brake light failed. Upon inspection found bulb to be burnt out and socket partially melted. Replaced bulb with manufacturers recommended bulb. It appears to be the same bulb that originally burned out. I have a concern for a vehicle fire due to this overheating.
