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.

The sliding power doors do not stop when they hit resistance. I was trapped between frame and door for a good 5 minutes in a large parking lot and could not get free until I finally wrestled the key remote out of a pocket and hit door open, otherwise, I was stuck. I could not move to free myself. I could not move the door. Thank goodness it wasn't my child that got stuck (I had my 1 year old with me, and it was pretty scary for her to see me trapped). This is a reaccuring problem. The dealer says it's just the way the system works, it's not defective. Evidently, the door won't reverse for an obstruction until it is 2" from closing (much smaller than a child's head or torso). This is a major safety issue. I had a bruised side. My brother-in-law (same make, model and year) - who's a big guy - got his arm trapped and bruised. We told yet another brother-in-law interested in same make, model, year - not to get the power door option... "it's too dangerous for the kids"... and he didn't!! this is all very alarming for adults. I worry about the first child who will be seriously injured. Something needs to be done. Thank you.

The child was playing with key ring with remote control for door latches when child hit remote. This caused door to start closing with parent in door frame. Door handle was grabbed to prevent door from closing. But door kept closing until stopping. Consumer's arm and wrist was pulled. Consumer contacted dealership & informed by mechanic, nothing can be done about remote control locks on door.

problem #8

Jul 012001

Odyssey

  • miles
There has been no injury to report as of yet. I feel that the power closing doors are very dangerous. They exert a great deal of pressure before the pressure sensor kicks in and reverses the door. A child could reach up getting in the van, pull the handle and initiate the door to close. If he faltered, it would be very easy for a body part (ie neck) to get lodged in the door and the force mechanism would not be enough to reverse the door before injury or death to occur.

- Kingsport, TN, USA

problem #7

Jun 152001

Odyssey

  • miles
Power doors do not stop properly when an obstruction is met. This almost injured my child. I believe that these doors should at least meet the standard of a garage door for reversing/stopping. I am told by the service staff that the sensitivity cannot be adjusted. I believe that this is an unacceptable hazard for a vehicle that is marketed for families with smallchildren.
