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

The contact owns a 2006 Honda Ridgeline. The contact stated there was a gap on the front of the instrument panel causing water to seep into the instrument panel making the entire air bag system inoperable. The air bag lights continued to illuminate continuously. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who replaced the seat belt connector, the front air bag apron, the rear air bag apron, the air bag rear module and the entire computer system but the failure continued to recur for the past three years. The manufacturer gave him an extra warranty package but the failure continued. The failure mileage was 70,000 and the current mileage was 110,000.

While driving approximately 50mph, the back part of my roof (a 5ft by 8inch piece of steel!) broke loose and flew off completely. It barely missed the car behind me and the oncoming traffic. The dealership says this is not a safety issue. Maybe not for the driver of the Ridgeline but the driver behind me could have easily been decapitated... this is not an isolated incident as the dealership said they have seen this a few times (and I live in a small town)!

problem #1

Ridgeline 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 43,675 miles
While lowering the back seat to make room for people to ride to lunch I noticed the back floor was wet. We have had moderate rains in the area over the past two-three days. Further examination revealed water puddled all the way across the entire back floor board, up the sides to both driver and front passenger floor boards. When I got home I pulled the truck in the garage and used a 5 gallon wet/dry vac and removed about 7.5 - 8 gallons of water from the truck. The carpet is still wet and ruined high likely hood of mold and mildew unless the carpet is removed and replaced. High potential for rust/corrosion unless the carpet is removed and the affected area is dried completely. I plan to take the truckin to the dealer asap.
