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.

Tires on 2011 Honda Pilot are needed to be replaced at less than 35000 miles. The Goodyear fortera hl tires that came standard are listed at a 60000 mile warranty if bought new. They have also worn completely uneven, despite rotation, where three of the tires have about 5% tread left and one tire has about 30% tread.

The four good year tires on my 2011 Honda Pilot are defective (premature wear). The dealer recommended I discuss the problem with my local good year dealer which I did. I was informed by good year that the tires on my Pilot were substandard and said the reason was Honda had requested tires without long-wear capabilities. Our local dealership has offered to sell my new tires for our Pilot at $140,00 each. This situation stinks and I believe would make a great class action suit. How many others are facing the prospect of having to purchase new tires for their Pilot due to premature wear" why would someone want to pay $35,000 for a new Pilot with substandard, defective tires"

The contact owns a 2011 Honda Pilot equipped with Goodyear fortera hl tires, size: 245/65 /R17. The contact was traveling 60-65 mph when the low tire pressure warning light illuminated. The contact confirmed that the passenger side rear tire was flat. The vehicle was taken to a local repair shop where the mechanic discovered that there was an internal puncture to the tire. The manufacturer was contacted. The vehicle was repaired. The failure and current mileages were 18,000.

Pilot 6-cyl

  • 6,500 miles
I drive a 2011 Honda Pilot. It was purchased new. On the morning of June 7, 2011, a family member discovered that the vehicle, which was in the driveway of the house, had a flat in the front, driver-side tire. The vehicle was placed on a flat bed and taken to a local mechanic. Upon inspection, the mechanic noted that there was a puncture to the sidewall of the tire which should not be repaired. A replacement tire was purchased and the old one was discarded. I speculated that road hazard may have caused the puncture, so did not think much about filing a complaint. The tire had about 6,183 miles on it the time of the incident. On the evening of June 17, 2011, as I was driving along the tappan zee bridge (connecting rockland and westchester counties) in New York, the tire warning indicator went on. Upon my arrival at home (about an 8-minute drive from the bridge), I noticed a hissing sound coming from the rear, driver-side tire and immediately concluded that the tire was deflating. The following morning the tire was flat. After installing the spare, I took the tire to a Goodyear dealer. Upon inspection, the mechanic noted that there was a puncture to the sidewall of the tire which should not be repaired, which was the same issue discovered with the front, driver-side tire. I replaced it with a new tire. The tire had approximately 6,500 miles on it the time of the incident. This time I filed a complaint since it was highly coincidental that two tires would fail within a 10-day period with the same fact pattern. I suspect that the vehicle came installed with at least two tires that had weak sidewalls.
