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.

Pilot 6-cyl

I was towing a trailer with a motorcycle in it. I was driving about 60 mph and the front end started to vibrate really bad. I drove to a friends house and left my trailer there because I was on my way out of town. I didn't notice the vibration once the trailer was removed. I now have about 54,000 miles on the car and the vibration can be pretty bad when I'm stopping hard and also sometimes when I'm driving. I've had the tires changed and rotated so I know it's not the tires. I also have a rear left tail light that keeps going out. I've changed it twice but it's not burned out. I think it must be a short. Now the radio lights have started to go dim. I first noticed this about 2 weeks ago. We got a hard rain this weekend and when I got into my car the next morning the headliner was wet around the sunroof on the passenger side.

The tail lights only work intermittently. We stopped by the highway patrol on the night of April 7. the next day we took it to the Honda dealer, Honda of bowie and they refused to check anything because at that time the lights were working. Yesterday April 13 again the tail lights were not working and again today they were and again Honda of bowie refused to make any checks. The Pilot is unsafe to drive at night. What can I do?
