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.

Fan blower motor stopped working. A/C compressor will turn on (heat, as well), however no air will blow. This is intermittent and does not always occur. The fan will eventually turn on and start blowing air.

Motor mounts showed failure with less than 30K. Have fixed the problem but internet search shows multiple concerns from other Honda Ridgeline owners with same failure with low mileage on vehicles within a 5 year or less model.

2008 Honda engine surge when running normal speed. The consumer stated the problem happened when he was slowing down to come to a stop. The surge would last about 1 to 2 seconds and the RPM's would return to normal. It would also happen when the engine was operating at regular temperature or when it was cold and when the cruise control was on or off.
