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 4WD 6-cyl

We got our Ridgeline on March 12 a few days that they had been out, only the second that the duval Honda had sold. And we have done nothing but love that truck. On Friday 11/25/05 on my way to work, I ahd been driving about 5-8 mintues and then I smelt something a little strange.........coming out of the ac vent. I turned the heater off......the smell of smoke started to get heavier and heavier. I looked into the vent and noticed that there was smoke and fire billowing inside.....not sure where it was coming from...I got out of the truck, called fire/rescue, and began to get most of the belongings that I could. The truck was fully involved by time fire/rescue arrived on scene. I must say that, back in septmber I noticed that the radio which is still stock was wired incorrectly, I mentioned it the last time that I took the baby in for servicing. They said that they would have to take the dash out and have it re-wired the correct way. And that it would be an all day affair, I havent had the time to have that done, and my dealer doesnt offer loaner cars. Am I saying that this is the reason that this happened" I am not sure. As anyone had anything simular?"
