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

Ridgeline 4WD 6-cyl

Getting into the car after shopping at a store, I closed the door and then had to reopen the door to help my passenger with shopping bags when I noticed that I could not get out of the car. I had to ask my passenger to come around and open the driver's door. I did not notice any defects with the door. After researching this issue through online forums, I saw many complaints about Honda's doors and problems with actuators. The next day I notice a latch on the side the door and attempted to move the latch to see if this affects the opening of the driver's door. When I moved this latch, the driver's door no longer closed and could not be closed by the key or attempting to move latch again. So I had to drive the car to the Honda dealership with the door wide open, holding the door to prevent it from flying open on turns while steering the car. Thank god the dealership is less than 2 miles away from my house. I definitely think its a safety concern when a person can get locked in their car or can move a latch manually and it prevents the door from closing all together.
