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.

2006 Honda Ridgeline Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 102006

Ridgeline 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 19,000 miles


Ridgelines built prior to 8/24/2005 does not support trailers with surge brakes. Tow electrical harness needs a 12V line into the trailer to disengage brakes when trailer is backing up. During reverse, since there is no 12V into the trailer, the trailer cannot be back up. The disk brakes are locked in the trailer. Honda has rectified the issue on newer Ridgelines.
