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 #2

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles


: the contact stated while driving 65 mph on normal road conditions, a ding noise was heard coming from the rear side drivers windows as if a pebble had been thrown at the window, then the side rear windows imploded shattering in pieces. The dealer was contacted, and determined the shattered window was not caused by a manufacturer defect. The windows were not replaced or repaired. The contact was waiting on the insurance company to evaluate the vehicle to determine what caused the windows to implode. Updated 11/30/06.

We purchased a 2001 Honda Odyssey from garcia Honda and still own the vehicle, he VIN is [xxx]. several months ago my wife was driving the van home with my daughter in the 2nd row seating. She was in the process of making a left turn from academy road (in albuquerque), onto ventura (North) when suddenly the front passenger side window imploded into a pile of glass, all over the car. My wife thought the window had been shot out or otherwise maliciously destroyed from some external source, and immediately called the police fortunately no one was seated in the passenger seat. We filed a police report about the incident and had the window replaced via allstate insurance. No projectiles were found in the vehicle, and we just had the window replaced and went about our business. At night on leaving our son's birthday party at hinkle family fun center, and merging onto I-40 West at juan tabo (merging onto the freeway), the drivers side front window imploded (by itself) into another pile of glass, nearly causing an accident and shooting glass all over my wife (driving) and the inside of the car (which had three other children in it at the time), causing some small cuts on her arms, and ruining the clothes she was wearing. This is way too big of a co-incidence for both of these passenger windows to just self destruct by themselves on the same vehicle. I would expect and hope Honda would pay for this repair, and investigate the block of vans and the glass that were manufactured with the same run of glass and window assemblies, before one explodes in a vehicle that does cause an accident or serious injury.
