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.

2008 Ridgeline...I have taken it to the dealer on 2 occasions reporting the I can push the brake pedal to the floor. After stopping at a traffic light and with light pressure on the brake pedal I am able to push the pedal right to the floor boards. Dealer has bleed the brakes the first time and did nothing the second, stating that the brakes on all 2008 Ridgelines were the same.

problem #1

Ridgeline

  • 13,073 miles
On August 22,2009 while traveling northbound on the hutchinson river parkway in the bronx, with moderate congestion, I applied normal pressure to the brake pedal of my 2008 Honda Ridgeline to hear a pop and snap and loss of all brake pressure. The event left me with no brakes, traveling at approximately 35mph in the left lane of the parkway. Trying to avoid a collision I struck the median guardrail and another vehicle traveling in the left lane in front of me. The accident left my vehicle un-drivable and had to be towed to a repair shop nearby. This was the first such problem and it was/is a major one that has not been addressed by either the dealership or corporation. Four months after the accident the vehicle was repaired and returned to me with no admission by any Honda representative of fault due to manufacturers defect in the brake system which was discovered and confirmed by an independent engineering firm. It is my fear that this malfunction will happen again and cause a more serious accident in the future. This malfunction should not be handled lightly and should be considered a life threatening issue that must be addressed and corrected immediately.
