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.

I have been noticing that when I brake my vehicle shakes - took it in to have the brakes done and the dealership told me that my brakes looked brand new and wanted to send me on my way. I asked well why is it shaking then and I was told that maybe the roaters needed machining a $207 service. This was after they did not bother to call me to tell me my vehicle was ready I just happened to show up an hour after my scheduled appt time so machining my roaters would have been another hour to 2 hour wait. (not happy) so I left and I am still dealing with the vibration. I also noticed within the past week after having to drive in heavy rainfall that when going above 45 mph I hydroplane badly - to the point where I almost hit a concrete barrier on the highway. The puddle of water was not, in my opinion, large enough to have created such hydroplaning, neither was my speed. Ended up driving my husbands Jeep until the rain subsided because now I'm scared of driving my car in the rain. I don't have documentation for the "repair" because they literally didn't even tag my vehicle. I will be taking it back this weekend considering I am not the only person having this issue apparently.

Vehicle shimmies, shakes, vibrates when braking and pulls to the left. Had 26,000 mile on vehicle. Brought to dealership and they said it could be due to breaking, car washes, and weather. Rosters were resurfaced at my expense. Now vehicle has 38,000 miles on it with the same problem. Dealership says it's my fault. All miles are highway and vehicle is garaged at home and during the day at the office. Did not need to replace roaters on any previously owned SUV's for 75,000 miles.

Pilot 6-cyl

  • 380 miles
Leased brand new Pilot LX on March 15, 2014. It appeared to be in perfect working condition. Then, suddenly on 3/30/14 while driving home, it lost about 80 percent of its brakes. To stop it, you must have foot to floor on brakes. If this had been an emergency stop, there could have been an accident. Taking it to dealer on 4/2/14 to see what the problem may be.
