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

Oct 272006

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 77,234 miles


The contact owns a 2001 Honda Odyssey. While driving uphill and stopping the vehicle, the vehicle rolled backwards when the contact released the brake pedal to accelerate. He took the vehicle to the dealer for other services and was informed that his transmission needed to be replaced. The dealer made the replacement for free. When the failure recurred, all of the instrument panel lights illuminated. With less than 19,000 miles on the new transmission, the vehicle was taken back to the dealer and the transmission was replaced again for free. The contact feels that it is only a matter of time before the failure recurs. The failure mileage was 77,234 and current mileage was 98,910. Updated 08/20/08 the consumer has had 3 transmission within six years. The timing belt was replaced and the vehicle was leaking coolant, the dealer replaced the water pump. The check engine light illuminated. The dealer replaced the catalytic converter. Updated 08/21/08.
