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.

My 2007 Honda Ridgeline VIN[xxx] is less than a year old I was driving back with my family which includes children on I95 South bound. I was doing 70mph. I did not go over anything. The Honda lost power. I had to glide to the shoulder of the road. The Honda would not go into drive or reverse. After being sent to the Honda repair I was informed the transmission needs to be replaced. I always kept up with my daily maintenance at my local Honda dealer. I do not trust this Honda Ridgeline with my family or anyone else's family. I told the deal I either want a new car or I will go to another manufacture and purchase a new car. I have a masters degree and bachelor's degree in information technology. Replacing the transmission will not safeguard the car. I would like to know why the transmission went out less than a year when I purchased the car new. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
