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.

2011 Honda Pilot Owner Comments

The sunroof spontaneously cracked while driving on a city street. When I took the car to the dealership, one of the mechanics mentioned that this was a common problem. Nevertheless, I had to pay for the entire replacement. The sunroof is regularly exposed to the sun because the 2011 Pilot does not have a retractable outer cover like most other cars have.

The car was parked on the drive way. The glass hatch was exploded as we closed the tailgate. It caused cuts on hand and leg on little boy standing by. Take the vehicle to the Honda dealer and dealer said it was not under warranty. Call american Honda and the answer was the same because the glass hatch was exploded, no warranty. This vehicle is less then 2 years old even with 3 year warranty. It costs $550. To fix it, plus more on personal injuries.
