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.

Tires wearing odd down the middle of the tread, no traction on wet roads in rain. Two front tires replaced and front alignment. Should not have to purchase new tires with less than 3,000 miles.

The auto is making a roaring sound at the front end drivers side due to a faulty wheel bearing. This auto was produce in Alabama during the month of July,2010. The auto has had this issue for some time since we brought it home.

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"

Brand new vehicle when it reaches aprox that speed or brake the steering wheel vibrates and shake violent at braking, also pulls to the left. Bring back to the dealership but not problem solve, they got a service bulletin 06-068 but it doesn't correct the problem, I got up to 23,000 miles and the tires became close to the carcase (all four), the vibration and pulling still.

Noticed a vibration in the gas pedal while driving at any speed. Feel every like bump in the roads. Also when slowing to a stop and turning or backing out of a parking spot, I feel/hear a hard vibration on brake. Took to dealer, they stated warped rotors...to new to happen. Got full brake job at $340. Drove off, issue still present. At this visit tires were rotated and balance too. Next day also noticed all 4 rims were damaged from the tool that removed my tires. Told supervisor everything I learned about other Pilot owners and this possible defeat of rotors. They still have my truck (4 days so far) trying to identify issue. They do agree there is an issue. They are going to do road force balancing next. I will fight for a refund of this brake job and will continue to pursue until I am satisfied.

My wife and I were driving home on the night of June 2nd, 2010 and were turning on the street we live on when the right front wheel just laid over. We had it towed to the dealership and they informed us that they thought that either the bolts were not properly torqued at the factory or possibly they just broke.these were the bolts that hold the spindle on.
