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 #1

Feb 022006

Ridgeline 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150 miles


Hesitation occurs consistently when speed is under 10 mph and then try to accelerate. Was leaving parking lot of convenience store rolling to exit stepped on the gas to get into traffic and truck hesitated for 2-3 seconds putting me into traffic with no power for those 2-3 seconds. Traffic had to brake for me. I believe this is a safety factor to be considered especially since I have two children usually with me. I had called Honda about this problem and they were familiar with it. If they were familiar why didn't they inform me of that before I spent $32,000 for the vehicle. When I test drove the truck I did not feel this hesitation as it started after I had 150 miles on it. They tell me it's drive by wire or something of this nature and basically have to live with it.
