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 6-cyl

My 6 year old grabs the rear entry handle on the inside of the truck behind the driver seat to help her get in and out of the vehicle. Today when she grabbed it getting in the top part of the handle ripped right off the interior wall causing her to fall backwards. Thankfully she was not injured but she very easily could have cracked her head open on the pavement. The screws that holds the rear entry handle to the truck are very tiny. I cant tell if it just came loose and backed itself out, or if it stripped. If one of these handles breaks loose from a 45 lb child, I could only imagine the handle would be more prone to breaking if an adult used it. The handle breaking off could very easily cause a serious injury by someone falling as they enter/exit the vehicle. I will be taking my vehicle to the dealer next week to get this fixed hopefully.
