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.

Well, I have another complaint on our 2001 Honda Odyssey. Now, it really has been a great van, but when it does have a problem it is usually an expensive fix. Both sliding doors actually failed on the same morning. They were stuck about half-way open. Our mechanic said that the gears had shattered. WE take great care of our vehicles and do not know why the motors for the doors were so bad. We're on a tight schedule and could not afford to wait, so we had to take our Ford instead, a major headache. This problem is not as bad as the others, but still it is a major concern. Today I would actually rebuild the doors myself, since now I know how to, and avoid the expensive repair cost.

The automatic sliding doors were constantly malfunctioning. In the winter, they get stuck due to the ice and cold. Any other time of the year, they occasionally do not close properly or won't open. The dealership was referring to the problem as routine maintenance while the corporate office referred to it as a required repair. It was a major headache getting the cost of repair covered by the warranty.

2001 Honda Odyssey sliding doors is just a mess. The sliding door on the passenger side sticks and when the door closes and it's in drive, it beep showing that the door is not closed. The door is close but it still beep. I don't know what it is with Honda or this van but they are slipping. They need to get back on track and start making their product not just for the outside shape. This is getting crazy and even though i like Honda this experience with this van is turning me off from them. And they don't take responsibility for their faulty products, they try to push it off as if the customers were the one that build the mess.
