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

Front engine mount is broken on Honda Odyssey. There seems to be a lot of owners of Honda Odyssey that report this problem when I searched the internet. I would like dot to research this issue as experts in this field and determine if there is sufficient number of cases to open a case on this issue. I am getting this work done in the next few weeks. This is not a mechanical part and should not be broken or worn out.

We have a 2001 Honda Odyssey LX. The power sliding door on the passenger side suddenly quit working and will no longer close properly. The only way we have been able to continue driving the car without the incessant alarm is to shut off the power sliding door function and try to keep it shut. There are several potentially big problems with this. Number one - the kids cannot open the door manually, it is too heavy for them. The only option they have to exit the car is on the traffic side of the vehicle. The door will suddenly become ajar when we are driving, even with the locks closed, which is also a huge safety factor. I have tried to get this problem fixed professionally numerous times and I cannot get a satisfactory answer to what the problem is. I cannot sell this car in good conscience with an issue like this.

My air conditioner in my 2001 Honda Odyssey stopped blowing cool air, so I took my van in to my dealership. I thought it would be something simple. But, apparently a rock must had hit my condenser and caused a leak. My condenser had to be replaced which ended up costing $750. This was a 5 hour job. I believe that this is a manufacture defect and have researched this issue. There are alot of other Honda Odyssey that have had this problem.
