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.

2001 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #3

May 142014

Odyssey EX 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 154,000 miles


Well, We have, twice a year, waxed and protected our 2001 Honda Odyssey since the year it was bought. The clearcoat feels thin and the paint color seems to be fading in the areas of both sliding doors at the tops, the rear top roof, the left fender, and the front hood middle. This problem is expensive to fix and very ugly. I do realize that the Odyssey is quite old, but I am surprise that it happened all the sudden within the last 12 months. Will add photos later.

Update from Jan 29, 2016: The clear coat failure is continuing as expected. This is an obnoxious problem that is common in Honda vehicles from 1999-2005. Honda did not do something right in their painting process.

Significant clear coat deterioration and paint oxidation on the hood and roof of the van, which makes the van look like a junker.

This van was garaged at least 3/4 of its life and the problem is ALL of the hood and the roof and has completely gotten 10 times worse in the last year.
