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 which is now on its 5th transmission and has 104,850 miles. Contact stated vehicle lurched forward at low speeds between 2-3 on the RPM gauge. Dealership could not duplicate problem.. the consumer stated the first time the transmission failed, it ceased to shift between gears. Every time the transmission was replaced it was because of a different problem. The egr was replaced due to internal damage. The engine and tcs lights had illuminated. The dealer stated a code determined there was a problem with the torque converter which was electrical. The front and side motor mounts were replaced.

Consumer states the van stalls when driving and the engine malfunction indicator light is on. Consumer was able to restart vehicle. This has happened 5 times. Dealer found vehicle is stalling because there is insufficient air flow caused by a defective exhaust gas recirculation system. However, there will be a delay on repairs due to lack of parts.
