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.

TL- the contact owns a 2001 Honda Odyssey. The contact stated that the vehicle would hesitate to accelerate when pressure was applied to the accelerator pedal. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer and the contact was informed that the transmission needed to be repaired. The torque converter was replaced instead of replacing the transmission as it was recommended by the mechanic, but Honda motor co had the final word. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and offered no assistance. The contact also stated that the vehicle intermittently stalled while driving at various speeds. In addition, the contact stated that the vehicle was once involved in a crash in which the air bags did not deploy. The manufacturer was notified and the contact was informed that the vehicle was not included in the recall associated with NHTSA campaign id number 11V260000 (air bags:frontal:driver side inflator module).

problem #2

Feb 142010

Odyssey

  • 153,174 miles
Odyssey 2001 suffered transmission failure in 2005 under 7-years warranty and less than 100,000 miles and Honda dealer failed to replace transmission. Owner of vehicle was not notified for recall and ability to file complaints with NHTSA during recall process. On February 14, 2010 vehicle stopped on middle of highway and owner was forced to push vehicle on shoulder despite of disability condition to avoid collision. Car was towed to dealer who quoted for $5,000 to replace transmission. It was discovered vehicle VIN #[xxx] is not in Honda manufacturer's database for recall because of inability of registered owner to file a complaint during recall process. This complaint is relevant to ODI#10335008 that I believe recorded inaccurate. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
