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 #1

Nov 062007

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • miles


Odyssey had 85,517 at the time of incident. Ignition key was removable with shift lever out of park. The dealer replaced switch at "my" expense. NHTSA in November of 2007 had issued a recall campaign number O3V422000 on the ignition switches for the Honda Accord (1998-2001) with mention of some Odyssey and Acura to be included in the campaign. Since that time they have had a recall with their 2003-04 Pilot (campaign #S73/service bulletin #13-011) for this same ignition switch problems. I contacted Honda via a letter on July 17, 2013 asking for consideration for a refund citing the above mentioned documents/campaigns, etc. Honda of America contacted me via the phone within a week and stated that the van now has over 150,000 miles and that the van would have to be under 70,000 in mileage. I then asked why then they would be recalling the 2003-2004 Pilot and that there would be no way any of those vehicles would meet the criteria of 70,000 miles. They had no answer but simply denied my claim. Fyi. My van has had three transmission replaced. First time at 30,000, then at 65,000 and then the last time just after 100,000. Clearly my model has issues but I am disappointed that Honda will not back up their products.
