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.

Ongoing problems with sliding door, seat belt and electrical issues. At 160K replaced transmission for $5000. Not happy at all.

The contact owns a 2001 Honda Odyssey. The contact stated that a child was able to wrap the seat belt around their neck, posing a possible choking hazard. The contact stopped the vehicle and attempted to remove the seat belt from the child's neck but to no avail. The seat belt buckle also become jammed and would not dislodge at the base. The contact had to sever the seat belt in order to release the belt from around the child's throat. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer for inspection or repairs. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 81,000.

The middle row seat belt on the drives side has broken/malfunctioned two times in under two months!! it has been taken to the dealership both times for repair. My 51/2 year old daughter has been in the seat both times when it has happened. The seat belt loses tension (feeds all the way out onto her lap) and then locks. We are unable to fix it on our own. Each time we take it to the dealer and they have to replace the entire seat belt.

Consumer states power sliding door is inoperative. The sliding door had gotten stuck, and trapped the kids in the vehicle. Ph the seat belts had unbolted from the interior. The sliding doors have been repaired on four occasions and remain inoperative. When the power is off, the doors cannot be opened manually and the transmission failed. Scc
