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.

Ridgeline V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 24,000 miles

I was once quite pleased with my Honda Ridgeline truck. I started to develop lots of respiratory problems, sinus problems and middle ear fluid. I had suddenly developed severe allergies to 8 different molds associated with a damp environment (I live in San Antonio). Weekly allergy shots, antihistamines and decongestants provided me with little to no relief. Then one day, I took my family to the movies and upon returning to the truck, discovered water condensation on the inside surface of everything and that the carpeting and the padding was saturated in the back of the truck and on the front passenger side (gallons of water). Because rubber floor mats cover every surface of the carpet that a person normally comes into contact with, I had been driving around in a truck with 2 known water leaks for two years. As a result, my truck had to undergo mold remediation and I am still severely sensitized to molds. Honda America claims that this did not constitute a health hazard even though the National Institutes of Health considers any indoor area that has been wet for 48 hours or more a health hazard and requires mold remediation. This defect affected 3,000 to 5,000 of the first Ridgelines off the line (100/state or a couple per dealer) and was known about in the middle of 2005. The main leak can be found by pouring a bucket of water over the passenger-side windshield and if the carpet gets wet, you too may be at risk. Total repair time before mold sets in is approximately 5 minutes. Two years after mold sets in, PRICELESS.

Honda America has shown a willingness to ignore public safety and that is why I subscribe to a service to notify me of service bulletins that may affect my health and well-being. You cannot rely on your dealer or manufacturer. Spread the Word!!
