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 #3

Aug 282009

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • 61,207 miles


While driving on the freeway, the front driver window suddenly dropped down without any action on my part. The sudden nature of the window dropping, the rush of air coming into the vehicle, and the loud freeway noise caused me to redirect my Focus from the roadway. After pulling off the freeway, I attempted to manually reposition the window to no avail. I had to slowly drive back home and park the minivan until my mechanic could repair the problem. The mechanic had to replace the power window regulator at a cost of $200 for parts and labor. On December 20, 2014, the same issue occurred on the front passenger window. This time the cost at the dealer was $340. I researched this issue on the internet and found that many Honda Odyssey owners have experienced this inherent problem. This is a safety issue should the problem occur while driving. Honda needs to issue a recall and/or reimburse current owners for the cost of power window regulator replacements.

  • Automatic transmission

The power sliding door fails to open electronically, either through the remote, the driver's controls on the dash, or the handles (both interior & exterior) on the door. This only affects one door (so far). The dealer says that washers have to be attached to four grounding wires inside the door in order for the electrical circuitry to work correctly, at a cost of $240. It is already out of warranty, but it seems that I shouldn't have to pay to repair what appears to be a defect in either the design or manufacturing of the vehicle.

  • Manual transmission
  • 5,000 miles
The minivan has automatic sliding rear doors that do not stop closing even when there is an obstruction. I have 2 small kids and am very afraid that if the door does not stop when I am obtructing it, that it is similarly not stop for unknowing kids.
