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 #2

Jan 302006

Ridgeline 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150 miles


Honda Ridgeline 2006 has considerable hesitation when accelerating from under 10 mph, especially when turning. I was leaving the parking lot of convenience store rolling at about 5 mph and then tried to accelerate out into faster moving traffic. Vehicle hesitated for about 3 seconds which put me in a position where cars on the roadway I was entering had to brake. Hesitation is constant and consistent since purchase of the truck. Now I currently have 2000 miles on vehicle. Called Honda and they say it's normal for the system of "drive by wire". I have another family member with same vehicle, he has no hesitation. Honda refuses to fix or at least look into my problem as they continue to say it's normal.

Fire in engine bay of new Honda Ridgeline, debris caught between exhaust and catalytic converter. Major damage. Bought 2nd. Ridgeline. 2 minor episodes of burning smell while using on dirt roads. This is not a coincidence!
