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 #2

May 112006

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 105,000 miles


: the contact stated while pulling into a parking lot the shield underneath the bumper of the vehicle hit the cement barrier causing damage to the radiator and the air conditioner. The vehicle began losing coolant and the air conditioner would not operate correctly. The contact believes this is a design flaw. The dealership has been alerted.

6.coolant system continued from ODI #760344. This left splash shield loose, vibrating & at risk of coming off, causing risk of accident/injury. Is it possible to require that Honda service personnel attend additional in service training on automobile coolant systems? so that consumers are not exposed to preventable hazards, examples being: Breathing coolant fumes, injuries from engine overheating, slippery surfaces & environmental dangers to underground water supplies from coolant run off. 7. right/left sliding doors-right/left sliding doors fail to open upon pulling of handles as designed. Three times our vehicle was returned to dealership for above complaint, after service bulletin 00-0091 was issued before repair was completed as per bulletin. I have spoken with a number of other Honda LX owners who stted they have same problem with being unable to open the sliding doors. When they took vehicles to dealership door seals were lubricated, but problem continues to exist. This is a safety issue as these vehicles are used to Transport children to & from school and because the sliding door won't open, children must enter area of traffic flow to enter vehicle, increasing risk of injury. Sliding doors can & will oen while vehicle is in motiion, due to inability to fully open/close sliding doors via handles as designed. 8.transmission-I complained of grinding noise when vehicle accelerates from 40to50mph. RPM's go up to 2000 upon acceleration, after reaching 50mph, RPM's drop to between1500 to 1700 and grinding is heard. Explained to dealership numerous times & test drove with service advisor, was told he heard nothing & vehicle was operating as designed. After final repair/vehicle defect notification inspection/repair was performed, vehicle continues to have grinding noise at 50mph & was returned to us with tranmission shifter inoperable in D3, 2nd & 1st drive gears. We are notifying you of what we feel are the dangerous conditions in which our vehicle is in.
