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.

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.

Issues: 1 - steering constantly vibrates at speeds above 45mph. Smooth roads higher vibrations. This vibration increases to extent that you feel that you are loosing control of the car at speed above 70mph and you can see the steering vibrating. So effectively, you cant drive you car beyond 70mph. 2 - transmission shutters at cruising speed above 35mph and searches for gears while going down hill. 3 - sudden burning smells in the cabin to an extent of air becoming toxic inside cabin. Honda replaced multiple parts but no result and problem has become worse. Finally Honda does not want to recognize that there is major issue so are washing off there hand by saying that it is vcm vibration. The point that vmc vibration can not be constant and those occur only when there transition from 3 cylinders to 6 cylinder or 6 to 3. the vehicle is under warranty as of now but once it goes out of warranty, Honda would never care for it.

45 miles on a brand new 2014 Pilot ex-L the ignition does not engaged consistently. When you turn the key and the engine cranks, it does not turn over, rather it continues to make cranking sound, even when key goes back to run/on position. You need to turn key off to get cranking to stop. 50 miles on barand new 2014 Pilot ex-L a continuous clicking sound comes from the steering column when making a left hand turn. It does it when you turn right, but more predominant when turning left. From onset - the driver's side door does not open and close smoothly - thought at first it was just the hinge catching, further inspection demonstrates the left front fender and driver's door seem is not uniform. Therefore the bottom of the fender and driver's side door are rubbing against each other and paint is rubbing off.
