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

Jul 052005


  • Automatic transmission
  • 83,640 miles


At 83,000 miles the second transmission on my 2001 Honda Odyssey failed (registered in my wife's name, lynn roessler). Original transmission failed at 43,000 miles in 2003 and was replaced by Honda under warranty. In July 2005 the second transmission began to slip, check engine light came on, D4 light began to blink, tcs light came on. Returned call to Honda dealer, who again replaced transmission and left inboard joint. I do not know if I have now have a new or rebuilt transmission. I am concerned that the two transmissions I have had so far have lasted, on average, about 41,000 miles.
