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

Bought a 2011 Honda Pilot approximately a year ago. Right off noticed it had a weird smell to it. Could not track it down. Well about a month ago it rained for about five days straight. That is when we noticed the floorboards were soaking wet. Tried to locate the leak and first found the windshield was cracked so we had it replaced. No luck there. Pulled up the carpet in the front driver side and it was full of water and mildew/mold. This was an issue when we bought the car and we were not informed of it. You can tell from how much mold and mildew that this is no new problem. Tried to research it online and this is no isolated issue. Many people are having this issue with the 2011 Pilot. This is a safety issue because wet shoes can slip on slick worn out pedals, and then you have an accident. Still to date haven't found leak and Honda just wants to charge to "fix" the issue and the next time it rains the floorboard is full of water again.

While driving on a highway at approximately 65 mph the hood became ajar after hitting a small dip in the road at the end of a bridge. The hook prevented the hood from opening the entire way and I was able to pull over safely and close the hood. Tried pulling it open afterwards and was not able to.
